I am getting ready to start another residency at The Mabin School here in Toronto and am very excited about it. This school has lovely students and staff to work with and I admire not only their creativity-welcoming physical space, but the atmosphere of sharing and mutual respect that is built in their classrooms.
I last worked with the grade 2 class, making stories that revolved around magic castles, forest-dwelling knights, and a couple of feisty princesses. This session will be with the grade 1s who have been working on mythological characters and stories, so we’re up for a bit of ‘how things became’ tales and some special powers and influencing mere mortals. Fun!
