My Artist in the Schools Residency has begun. I was a little unsure of how it would go, but now that we are into the swing, it feels pretty good and I hope the kids and teachers feel the same way. I feel a little more comfortable showing these pictures since they involved my Residency.
The signs all over made me feel legit:

Is there anything on earth cuter than a child focused on their art? These pics are of second graders.

ISB has children from around the world although most are Chinese. Classes are taught in English, but many younger kids come to the school with no English at all. These kids have been doing really nice jobs because their powers of observation are how they make their way in this school while learning English:

I love seeing the kids' dragons! They look like they are concentrating so hard. Have they played with clay before?

I hope you get to keep the sign.

Some kids have had experiences with clay before. This is a very expensive school to attend and the parents have to be fairly rich to attend. So many of the kids' parents can afford to provide them lessons and afterschool activities in a wide variety of subjects.
That sign is too big to go in my luggage, but they are going to give me some luggage-sized posters. I'm really glad.
