I love the moments before the students arrive at their Trendy Crafts session. The table is set, the sample is ready, and we just wait, enjoying the brief moment of silence, the anticipation of the excitement at seeing what we will work on. This is so much different then all the teaching I have ever done. We are providing so much more than a craft to work on. We are giving students a place to be creative, to enjoy each others company while making something all their own. Each child that attends a session of Trendy Crafts learns that there are no mistakes in art, that our sample is just that, a sample, and that they are the masters of their creative destiny. All that in an hour. wow.
