|Shiny and bright sparkly new materials for a new term of learning and experimenting|
It seems to me that there are a lot of similarities between life now and life back then. Every time we pick up pencil or brush we are adding to the knowledge, experience and skills that started during those first days of school, which were filled with concentration, making tentative marks on paper. At break times I am catching up with friends in the real and those friends made in the blogging playground - it's really not so different.
A parcel of new materials for a new term of work has arrived, the smell of the new pencils took me right back to the little wooden hut of my reception class taught by Mrs Hockey. Then Mrs Romeril whose love of art and nature was infectious. Fast forward to the art room of Mr Bailey my first art teacher who opened the door to a whole new and exciting world. Good teachers stay with you forever and I was very lucky to have never had a bad one.

Looking at this replacement order of paint I can see that I have painted a lot of blue recently! I bought the daisy palette at a charity shop it was in a stack of the kind of dishes used for party nibbles! What a piece of luck.
Do you look forward to a new 'term'? What do you do to prepare? Which teachers have stayed with you?
