I was reminded of this simple principle as we had Art 101. I gave the grand kiddies a little demo on mixing watercolours and then turned them loose on the colour wheel. I let go the outcome and and the time clock. I let go and I think we can call the day successful!
I will continue to let them have an half hour for their planners first as it settles them in. I will try to remember that these are 'their' planners and their 'art'! Keep it simply stressless!
And speaking of planners...
unplanner did not work for me so I have dispersed it to the grand kiddies. There is tons of tutorials and suggestions on the site. The focus is on prep and I am no front runner. I am more likely the tag end trying valiantly to cross the finish line. They have lots of examples and suggestions. I mostly play catch up. Although they are helpful and have tons of ideas this particular way is just not practical for my life and style. The emphasis on the unplanner is art so there are lots of modifications, improvisations and general messing around before one actually plans. I am not organized enough to do the before stuff in advance of the due date. lol I tend to jot down events. Some before but a lot after. Then I fill in the blanks with all the ephemera that I collect to help me remember. lol
