Stones I painted to give students in the Art Club

Stones I painted to give students in the Art Club

Last week I went to school to show my Pysanky eggs and demonstrate how they are made, — to elementary art club students. It was great fun for me. There were 18 fifth and sixth grade students and they were outstanding in their good manners and good behavior.

I took a box of what I think of as “seconds”, eggs which have flaws, either in design or color or finish. These I let them handle freely, because if one of them breaks, it doesn’t matter to me. The kids were so careful with my seconds that I ended up letting them handle everything. I took several dozen of decorated eggs and nothing was broken. The students were polite and very appreciative. I had a wonderful time with them.

I like to give them something to remember me by when I go to a class like this. This time I painted small flat stones, mostly with an Easter motif. The students were very excited to choose a stone and I was so happy to be able to give them the stones. I think some of them want to paint stones now. Maybe some day I’ll go to a class and talk about and show them my painted stones.

I really enjoyed the time at school this week.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.
