- Handing sharp instruments to squirrely students does not have to spell "B-L-O-O-D-S-H-E-D" and in fact, can result in cleverness and creativity galore.
- Handing sharp instruments to said squirrels DOES mean much worry and sweating and stern guidance.
- While classroom chaos does not occur in carving class, it DOES erupt during a lesson on paper folding...go figure!
- Perhaps having 45 students fold and race paper airplanes was not the best idea if the goal was a soft, reserved, dignified lesson plan on origami.
- It was really fun watching the middle school monkeys and their creativity take flight, no matter how chaotic the air space.
- Spending a lot of time working small can result in a nearly wild urge to work HUGE!
- Large, prestretched canvases cost as much as dinner at a nice restaurant. Box mac & cheese it is for me!
