Our art class included children aged 12 – 16 and are who were often experiencing complex emotional & domestic issues. Through activities that strayed away from rulers & erasers, we were trying to help them find a space where they could freely express themselves.
Here were the ‘rules’ of the class:
- No borradors/ no erasers
- No hay reglas/ no rulers
- Los errors de arte no existen/ ‘Mistakes’ don’t exist in art
- Aceptan y respectan los ideas y creaciones de los otros estudiantes y dan critica constructiva / Respect others ideas and creations and give constructive criticism
