Those Crafty Kids!

Kids can be so crafty, there’s just no knowing what they’ll get up to! One minute they’re looking innocent and sitting quietly, the next thing you know, they’ve gone and done something… well, amazing! Craft and Art are subjects that we love, especially in LA14 and during art with our incredible Ms Sveinbjornsson, but this year I’ve been so fortunate to have inherited students who take this love home. Three students, this week alone, totally surprised me by bringing in wonderful examples of the things they’ve been doing at home. Mya, who has already showcased her creations on her blog (link here) brought in some jewellery that she’d made at home. Erin has taken her art to a totally new level by taking classes outside school, something I don’t think any other student I’ve ever taught has done. Her painting of balls (or gobstoppers, or gumballs – not sure) in a jar is totally beyond anything I could ever hope to produce. Iman produced a beautiful beach scene and, get this, gave it as a gift to Ms Sveinbjornsson! Check out the photos below and get set to be blown away!
