This year I officially started teaching art lessons in the public schools
through a program called Keren Karev.
I teach grades 1-3 at Ben Tzvi in Afula once a week.
I have 2 classes of each grade and 143 pupils all in all!
It’s definitely quite a challenge but I love it!!!!
Our first Lesson: 2 October 2013- “Oops Beautiful”
I read the wonderful book” Oops Beautiful“and translated it into Hebrew. It is a wonderful story to help the kids celebrate their “mistakes” and turn them into magic! I think it’s a great way to start the year and get to know new kids.
I prepared small papers at home with splashes on them .I handed them out along with a black marker pen and told the kids to let their imagination go wild. I had also prepared a long paper full of splashes to do together and asked them what they could see and together we came up with all kinds of creatures!
