Consistency Pays Back

I organize my art studio with color. I mean Everything with a capital “E”. The markers, colored pencils, oil and chalk pastels, paper, paint. You name it.

Recently, a student came to me to ask if he could organize the paper scraps. “YES please!” He was finished with his art before the others and I was thrilled that he was interested in offering a helping hand over taking the time for free draw. But the best part of it all, is his strategy.

Yes, it is organized by color! Without the slightest prompt, this is what he chose to do.

When have you witnessed your students sharing their knowledge without your prompting ?
Share those heart warming stories of pay back that we are so grateful for!

Have a colorful day! -MJ
