It's easy to imagine that the only thing going on in the studio these days is FOOD but not so. The children have been working on many things from painting, to building and light explorations. This is an example of their recent drawings. The children used black, thin and thick line sharpies on white card stock in order to convey their faces in two-dimensions. The effects are truly wonderful and reflect months of observational drawing.
Contrary to what the sign says, we used rice milk rather than coconut (because we are nut-free in the literal sense and while coconuts are drupes apparently, they are classified as nuts by the FDA) otherwise the recipe was simply: bananas, avocados, rice milk, cocoa powder, maple syrup and a touch of salt blended 'til smooth and enjoyed! YUM and as the children will tell you, "It's a healthy pudding snack!"
