Teaching the teachers

And what wondeful attentive students they were too. My brief had been to deliver a training session to a number of reception and early years teachers, to enable them to teach Drawing with more confidence. The Art co-ordinator at the Primary school is very supportive and provided the media and papers that we needed to complete the tasks I had set.

We spent an hour working very hard, and I really enjoyed working with the teachers, who are not Art specialists I hasten to add. It was a great way to spend a Friday afternoon.

I have been invited back for a repeat session for the Junior teachers. I am really looking forward to the opportunity. Hopefully the teachers from today's session can show me the results of their training and how they have interpreted the ideas to deliver to their young students.
This morning we also picked up our lamb..... not a living one you understand, but one made of oak and "fashioned" with a chain saw.... my photo software is playing up, so you will have to wait for a photo ... sorry. Herr Schnauzer is very impressed, he now has a new friend. He keeps nuzzling its nose. Sort of love at first sight.
As I am off to the Knitting and Stitching show at Ally Pally tomorrow, it may be Sunday before I manage to re-install the image software. I am on the Computer Textile Design Group stand - so please come and say hello if you go to the Show, I would love to meet you.
