Smile ......

Hello & thanks for stopping by my blog today.

This is a card I made for an artist at our setting. She was an inspiration to us the staff & the children/parents. She worked with the children to build sculptures, work with clay, experimenting with different ways of using a selection of paints BUT what has stuck in my mind is that Cath (our artist), taught the children how to use a digital camera. It was lovely to see photos through a child's eye. Our children are only aged from 2 to 4 yrs old. Cath even did a photography  expedition in Italy, using one child from our setting's photos. Also at Wandsworth South-sides, another photography expedition, Our setting came 2nd! And cath also involved senior citizens and our children with photography. The children visited them & enjoyed cakes & they came to our setting too, fun had by all.
Unfortunately, Cath moved too far to travel to & from our setting. She will be greatly missed by all.
