Through the Looking Glass

Looking through the blue looking glass.
What might seem like a frivolous use of time is
so much more than that.
After finishing a wood sculpture, this young artist
was at the light table exploring the different colored
pieces of plastic shapes.
Covering a little hole in a piece of wood with
one color and observing the effects that it had on
the light was endlessly interesting.

The final action was taking a photo with the blue
piece on the lens.
I love when a child is engaged with something that will
give information that will stay and deepen for a lifetime.
The next time your child is deeply engaged with an activity
other than television, observe them knowing that learning is
happening .
