We had our second school-wide seminar right before Thanksgiving break.
Each class read the book ish by Peter Reynolds. The story is about a boy who loves to draw until he is mocked for his drawings and loses his confidence and joy in creating art. The ideas and values discussed were perfection, improvement, joy, motivation, and confidence.
For our post seminar activity, students created a drawing to show how ‘ish‘ thinking may bring you joy and the feeling of confidence and success. We created a school-wide crumpled art gallery to showcase our ish pictures.
The next time you visit, check it out! It is located in the hallway near the cafeteria.
