Running, Jumping, and Painting

If you're a regular visitor to this blog, you'll know how much I love the artistic creations made by children. The freedom, the colour, the movement, the life that's so often splashed, dashed, meticulously drawn, and applied with the sharp pencils and broad brushstrokes of uninhibited imaginations.

To round off a week of treats - success for SW and her school in an athletics competition she wasn't all that keen on taking part in, a fabulously noisy, busy, school sports day yesterday afternoon, under pale blue sky, stretched with the 'feel' of summer - today, an exhibition of artwork produced by the children.

  2. I love this stage, when they just go for it and produce wacky inventive stuff. My colleague used SW's drawings and stories the other day in her Child Language Acquisition class and said they loved them. Still using those resources you let me have!

    1. When I told her that someone was using her work in a school for older kids, SW beamed from ear to ear. She's so pleased.

  6. Apologies to all for my slack response to your comments. I'm getting my act together again on the blogging front.
