We were so excited to welcome Friday’s artist of the day to our classroom! Allyson Kasper graduated from The Children’s School at Stephens College 12 years ago and is currently at Southern Illinois University studying sculpture! She uses lots of Studio Habits of Mind in her work. She has to Stretch and Explore, Engage and Persist, Observe, Envision and she often Reflects about the art she creates. Just like us, she loves dinosaurs and sharks and even made a life size shark sculpture. It was inspiring to learn from another artist from our community.
