Thursday was my second (of five!) days at Broadacres P.S. as the tsdbCREATES Artist Mentor and it was somehow even more awesome than my first day.
One Day 1, we wrote love letters to our school (and I can say “our” because it was also my school from Grades 3-5!), and then Day 2, we wrote love letters to our communities. We drew maps of what we loved about our neighhourhoods…
And then joined together and drew a collective map on huge roll of Kraft paper of everything we love about where we live. It was such a large, varied map. It’s such a fascinating thing to uncover the parts of a neighbourhood that collectively fill us to the brim (and hear the stories of why we love these things so much).
We then wrote love letters to the things we loved most. First rough copies:
Then good copies:
Then we made envelopes:
(And on my way home, I spotted this gem by the gym!)
I can’t wait for NEXT Thursday!
