I recently enjoyed teaching at a government childcare centre. It's certainly easier in some ways to teach children that are not your own...strangely! Perhaps I'm more patient with other people's children! Anyway, my own daughter was too busy helping me and supervising others students to be taught. She took her role as 'assistant printer' very seriously!
It was nice to be able to let parents know that art doesn't have to be expensive. In fact, to do the kind of printing we did, you really only need some paint and white polystyrene fruit trays. Photocopy paper and a few sponges...and your kid is off! What's really important is the fact that parents are spending gadget-free time with their children - and kids are leading the way with what they want to create using the colours they love!
