By Sara Zacuto "Trust yourself, yes, but also trust children. They know what they need to do." ~Bev Bos

Slabs and Structures

By Rebecca Sadler

"Using clay gives children another language for expressing thoughts, ideas, and emerging working theories about their world...helping them to make their thinking and learning visible." ~Lisa Terreni

Self-Portraits

By Lilly Green

“When we invite children to create self-portraits, we offer them mirrors and encourage long, sustained study of their faces from [an] unfamiliar perspective. Then we ask them to re-create themselves on paper, weaving together the image that they see in the mirror with the person they experience themselves to be. Their portraits are eloquent statements of self.” ~Ann Pelo

Listen To Children…

by Sara Zacuto

"Trust children. Nothing could be more simple, or more difficult. Difficult because to trust children we must learn to trust ourselves, and most of us were taught as children that we could not be trusted."
~John Holt
