7th grade has been working very hard on their Rhythm, Movement, Pattern project.  Critique was done as a class this week and the projects are waiting to be graded this weekend.

One student had a different idea, he may have been gone when we started, not paying attention (sadly), or just had his own thing going.  I was walking around the room checking on them and noticed he hadn’t created his organic shapes in the way instructed and asked if he had something different in mind.  Sure enough, he did and I said he could go right ahead and do it so that I would know what he was planning.

I am glad I gave him the leeway to follow his own idea.  he worked really hard and it will stand out when all the projects are displayed, even though they are all stand-out pieces.
