In the Magical Paper Maché Garden, now on exhibit at the Fletcher Free Library, we find the enjoyment of color, texture, and lots of joyous energy. It was my privilege to guide this class in creating this garden, and my pleasure to celebrate with them, in their garden.

On the last day of class the students entered the exhibit room together, with some guests. We had arranged all the sculptures in a grouping that made up the Magical Garden and I had birdsongs playing in the background.  The students got to really experience all their energy coming together in this one big colorful display. I was happy to experience my students’ pleasure at seeing all of their sculptures, arranged as a true garden.

We have received wonderful feedback and appreciation for this lovely art. I am pleased and proud to have been a guide, knowing that my students are showing the world that having a disability doesn’t mean limitations on creativity.

This exhibit continues through the end of June.
