The topic of today’s class was to make a `Pop-up Garden’.
Being asked to bring any materials to make a garden in `free-style’, Charlotte, one of the participants said this after opening
bags full of fun stuff from her house.
It was slightly easier because I could bring anything interesting but it was slightly harder because I didn’t know how to use it.
as borders of the path,
one is to brainstorm through material, the other is to use material after brainstorming.
I need to imagine in it my head first. Once I have it in mind I can make it.
Listening to Sheila, I found that imagination is such a powerful tool; even with sight impairment, once you have conjured up an image in your mind, you can give a visual form to it.
Sheila also said this after reflecting on the class when we made birds out of leaves:
I don’t look at the leaves in the same way I used to. After making the bird, they seem different now.
It’s so interesting how they incorporate everyday material in art making and also how that experiences change the way they see the familiar.
Next week, we will make a lake and animals that live around the lake.
