Last year I watched Neil Tyson's clip about kids all being scientists and it reminded me of Sir Ken Robinson's TED talk, where he speaks about how all kids are initially creative but that our education system conditions them out of creativity.
Yesterday Mrs. Fishley led students in our Art Club in an acrylic pour (learn about the science of it here). There was a great turnout - about 15 students came - and I think everyone's paintings were successful. Some of the finished products looked like abstracts of earth and other planets from outer space - so cool.
