Exploring Tape and Making Connections

In our second week of using tape to explore color and line, we began by working on black paper.

Working beside his mother, this young artist was inspired to add "connections" between their pieces.

He noticed how the connections could bend and change shape.

He eventually separated the papers again by cutting the tape but not before inspiring a fellow artist...

This young artist added connections to her mother's paper, then took the idea a step further by painting the pieces side by side with her mom, creating visual connections in the broad brush strokes.
This reminds me of George Szekely's idea that an art class is a place to work alongside the other artists of one's generation to share process and ideas. For the very young here, the sharing is about their connections to their parents as well as to each other as they work in the studio.
