The Colors Truly Are Beautiful!

In these photos you can see one of the children creating art using paint that she mixed.  This is part of our “It’s So Beautiful” project.  As we’ve practiced the “Pedagogy of Listening” Carlina Rinaldi, we’ve heard the children speak about beautiful colors, glitzy colors.  As we’ve read through our notes, watched videos, reread conversations, along with advice from our Reggio Coach, Jen, we decided to ask the children to mix their own beautiful colors.  In the 1st and 2nd photos above this child wanted to make her color more sparkly so she added glitter to the paint.  To the far right you can see some samples of colors that other children have created.  The colors truly are BEAUTIFUL!  Every single day, I realize how lucky I am as a teacher to live with the children who create such beauty!
