art classes…

Took some art classes today, two with 9 – 12 year olds and another with 12 – 15 year olds.montage_class

The methodology for teaching here normally involves the teacher drawing on the blackboard and the kids copying so i think i flummoxed them a bit when i asked them to draw themselves, a bit pedestrian i know for a first lesson, but i just wanted to gauge what each one can do and their level of interest. Next week will try to get them making things. Did a composition and practical photography class with the older kids, a lot of whom had never taken a photo before. They took to it with unbridled enthusiasm. Here are some of their photos, some of which are brilliant, cant wait to see what they do next.
