Another gift of teaching for me is introducing eager new students to the world of collage and mixed media and art in general. Yesterday I had that privilege. I watched as one of my students with no knowledge of this medium or the tools we use, dove in and created a beautiful book. Watching her walk through uncertainty, which turned to smiles and laughter as she allowed herself to play and get in touch with her creativity, warmed my heart. Being in her shoes not too long ago, I was thrilled to pass the torch.
