Our Atelier: Rebecca Brown
Thanks for taking a peek at our homeschool/art room. It’s taken a while to get here, but our basic philosophy is to give the kids lots of options and lots of variety. And while I love planning an art project and working with the kids, there is nothing better than glancing over there on a quiet afternoon and seeing them sitting on the carpet, surrounded by scraps of paper and happily gluing together some sort of artful monstrosity that comes straight from their brains. And as we all know, kid brains can tap into a crazy amount of genius – a genius we can only dream of of tapping into in our bill-paying-bottom-wiping-stress-inducing state of adulthood.
Maybe we should all go hang out in an art room more? Cut some paper, go through an entire bottle of glue in an afternoon and chase that with an entire roll of tape? Maybe we could find a little bit of our youth again.
