Thank you! I have wondered....looking at your children's loose-parts creations, how they happened. My kids don't create pictures with loose parts. I'd love to hear more about your process...
The children at the preschool don't either. but when i went to a Loose Parts workshop they said you need to put them out for a bit so the children can "make friends with the materials.
The drawings are transfered onto plexiglass sometimes using transpacy sheets or the children draw them anew-they then select the loose materials they want - they are applied using a waste and glue solution-this allows us to reuse the Materials at a later date- these girls worked over a light table- one of my favourite pieces !
Thank you! Just wonderful!
