interesting sculptures. They have the ability to choose their materials, cut tape and piece them together
or glue them. I have encouraged them to leave their work and add to it before they take it home.
They worked on the cover of their sketchbook . They will use it for the entire year. It will be a place for exploration most days that they come in.

Atleier: at-el-ier (at-l-yey)noun
A workshop or studio,especially of an artist,artisan,or designer.
In the sprit of Reggio Emelia, we will be calling our artstudio the "atelier".
The atelier was busy this week with the young artists
who came back to school. What a wonderful time we all had!
New students as well as returning ones explored the different
areas of the studio.
We have a new room which desperately needs to
be broken in! We are high up now! We can see the sky as well as the tops
of the buildings surrounding us. We will be having a wonderful year filled with creativity
and age appropriate art experiences.
