Working Together in a Studio

In the studio children generally mix colors in a group, sharing discoveries as they watch the magic of stirring colors together. They spread out to have more elbow room when they are ready to paint. Here, is very intent on his work on his painting.
A couple friends come over to see R's work, pointing out parts they notice.
It is delightful to have others come see your work, R tells them it is a city.
The friends now notice more, picking out parts of the city. One of the joys of working in a group in the studio is the opportunity for peer feedback and learning. Sharing artwork, ideas and strategies enriches the experience. As the teacher/observer, it is lovely to stand back and watch conversations develop.
