MGIS Art Room-- What a morning! I always get the same prolific experience whenever I visit the art room. As anticipated, I never go out of this area empty-handed, with the visuals of students’ art pieces vividly retained on my mind; hence, stimulating my thoughts to write.
Here's a practical anecdote:
|Still life drawing: The above vases are the subjects|
At the end of the session, these were the completed art works by each student:
Group Dynamics. The students were then asked by the teacher of their views about their own work and the work of their classmates. And as expected of kids, initially, they found some drawings odd and made fun of one another's work.
Then, just before the bell rang, the teacher said: " As you may have noticed, people tend to perceive the same thing (subject) differently. There's one work that seems to stand out from the rest because he combined the two drawings in one paper. And,still, there are some work that turned out to have dominant dark green or intense aqua blue or neon green, using the same set of primary colors... Class,just like you and everybody else, we are all unique in our own ways. Not because one is different, we will reject him or consider him an outcast. We have the thing called 'individual differences', and knowing how people are different from one another will make us more understanding of them."
