Students create Sunflowers and Colanders mural

Last night I taught graduate students at William Paterson University/WPU who are in-service elementary and early childhood teachers.  The title of the class is "Creativity and Play" and I co-teach this class with Dr. Janis Strasser from WPU.   The topic was "observational drawing",  a topic that often frightens students, as observational drawing has a very bad rap for very good reason!  However these students triumphed over their own hesitations and created an amazing mural which is now hanging in the halls of WPU.  I look forward to hearing their comments as to the meaning of this piece in the coming week.  Triada
