Creative teaching

I saw this wonderfully creative piece of art while visiting Hillcrest School. All students had used the same media ( cutting out coloured paper) but every piece was so different but Amy's (age 7) work stood out. The aesthetic feeling gained from achieving such a piece is the best 'evidence' of learning. And of course it is a representation of an important idea to the young artist. A real change from the 'formulaic' art I so often see.

Just love Amy's art work. I agree that so much of art is too teacher dominated. I bet she felt great satisfaction in completing it.
