The Columbarium project

3:59 PM

I think this past week was one of the longest weeks ever. Then this weekend is flying by! There is a lot for the update tomorrow but I would like to share the project I had been working on all week. My poetry workshop is already a little insane, but in a good way. Then throw and arts and crafts project on top of that, and you have 8 students who did not sleep this week. 

The columbarium project had to involve a lot, our interpretation of a niche, 8-10 poems, something from our childhood homes as well as an epigraph from Gaston Bachlard "The poetics of space." Mine was a challenge because I got the great Idea in my head that I could decoupage my box, when I never had done it before. It did not look antiqued at all but it was still manageable. 

We also had to include this picture of Bees. The cow is a stand-in for my old dog Angus, I was also very tired and forgot to take a picture of the inside of my box, where the poems are and the catalog that I created. Here are the other students projects: 


 I have to apologize for bombarding you guys with so many pictures!! I hope everyone is having a great weekend, and if you celebrate Easter, Happy Bunny Day!!
