Art with Food
We decided to make art and snack at the same time one day after school. I told the kids that graham crackers could be their canvas,
candy melts could be their paint,
and pretzel sticks and marshmallows could be their paint brushes.
They were only limited by their own imaginations.
Willow is a young girl who has her own idea about what makes good art. Her art teacher likes things orderly, and does not like things (including art) to be different or out of the ordinary. Willow refuses to be stifled and in doing so enlightens her teacher. There are many great lessons in this book. We love that Willow is true to herself and encourages others to be true to themselves too.
