these days i'm giving tours for elementary school field trips to the art gallery.
have a few gems.
in response to me asking how long it took to make the biggest piece in the show:
when asked what they thought my favorite piece was a picture of:
"it looks like the inside of a unicorn."
during their drawing time (their papers are on clipboards):
"i moved the paper a little bit. i just wanted you to know so i don't get in trouble."
sharing what they thought a piece was about. this child was nine:
"that movie, the black swan. ..........what? i've seen that movie."
when asked if they have any collections:
"i collect empty toilet paper rolls."
when i told them they were going to build their own quilt as a class:
"do we have to build it all together?"
"but i don't want to build a quilt with the girls! they ruin everything!" i thought he was going to cry. a second-grader:
"you have the same phone as me." what.
