Leonardo da Vinci said, “Choose only one master: Nature.”
Outdoor “Clay” play Fun- playing with “clay” in the Mother Nature.
Material: Utilized mud instead of real clay (owing to the shortage of art supplies).
Barbie（pseudonym）was a 10-year-old girl, Grade 4. Built a mud house for her sister ,grandma and herself. She even made her own image as a small sculpture lying under a tree next to the house.
Barbie used to draw people’s attention by making grotesque laughing or fake crying sound. Surprisingly enough ,she dwelled herself fully while “building” this mud house in class. It’s rare to see her face expression being gloomy but somehow showed her maturity as well.I knew she thought of her past. What I could do was looking into her eys and smiled. As I knew, her emotions and feelings ,lots of them, already released through manipulating “clay”.
The process of creating art works is already a self healing process.
