In the past, I have taught classes at BLOOM in Ithaca and at my grandson’s elementary school, (Pot Springs in Timonium, MD) with the following themes:
Sticks and Stones, Shells and Bones
Strings and Stamps in Silver
Glitter and Gauze in Gold
Ribbons and Rainbows and Rings, Oh My!
Designs, Doodles and Decals
Miscellaneous Multicolor Madness
Portraits and Paintings with Paper
Things that Swing
Silly Sock Puppets
I still have the materials gathered up as “FLOOF-on-the-GO!”, so repeating those classes is easy.
I always bring a basic supply of scissors, punches, glue, a hot glue gun (which I operate), basic paper, markers, pens and pencils, rulers, along with a little box of the materials specific to that class.
The themes are only a suggestion – I’m pretty laissez-faire about kids’ ideas. Whatever works for them, works for me. It’s really more about the process than the product.
