Spending this rainy day indoors painting up a storm in our studio ! Sebby isn’t quite sure what he thinks about sharing all his art supplies with his little sister... I think maybe he preferred when she wasn’t standing and grabbing at all of the same things !! 📸: @clarkylaura #sebbyandlily

Really taking this outdoor learning thing seriously. Don’t want my children in front of screens all day long or having what is known as a nature deficit disorder. What are some of your favourite outdoor spots in the GTA? Today we went to @evergreen_brick_works but can usually be found on walks in our local forest (Humber river trails that lead to @mcmichaelgallery)... As tired as I feel some days, I just load them up into the double stroller and go. Once we breathe in that fresh air, it’s always worth the effort !!

Today was the last day of my course on Environments that Support Learning Interactions. We had some inspiring guest speakers (Heather from Bishop Strachan, @nikibelegrinis from George Brown, and Lana @shimmerteach from Pape Avenue P.S.) throughout our three days. To wrap up, I brought the educators to experience my enchanted forest and creative studio space. 📸: @shimmerteach

Mini colour bottles for the light table made with water and food colouring that were placed in front of a mirror. 💡 Today I took my course to visit the @senecaecelabschool Newnham campus. I was personally seeking new ideas for toddlers and preschoolers but left with so SO much more !! This school is alive with learning and I wish I lived closer for my son to attend full time. @tanya.farzaneh your exhibit on “the many layers of paint” took my breath away !! Truly a sanctuary of colour and creativity !! If you ever need an intern or volunteer - I’m your girl !! Thank you again for your generosity and congratulations on your new position leading this incredible space / team. For more on our experience, please visit my stories...

I love documentation from Reggio Emilia, Italy. Their books inspire my work !!! 😊😊😊😊😊 Last week I had two groups of educators visit the studio for some back to school workshops. This week I hope to inspire another group  at the Bishop Strachan School for my upcoming course on Environments that Support Learning Interactions. 📸: @clarkylaura

When parents are worried about making a mess with paint, I often suggest doing some art in the bathtub. When you are finished it’s so easy to wash everything - including your baby !! My husband took this picture of me with Sebby before his first birthday.  I plan to give Lily a canvas experience in the tub soon too!! Stay tuned...

My girly strumming her guitar backwards while wearing some of the lace I had set out for her to experience texture. 🎸 Infants also have the right to explore real materials and not be limited to those traditional plastic commercialized, colourful and loud toys. Here Miss Lily is tapping her own tune onto the wood. Look how proud she is that we noticed !! 📸: @clarkylaura

Last day of summer classes! And I’m already starting to think of new creative ideas for Fall !!! This simple painting experience was for my son when he was an infant and I feel like I have to include it into my plans. Also I have to start blogging my documentation again - especially from the studio programs !! I have way more than what can be shared here on IG. Hoping to get back to this again soon, once I complete all the digital and hard copy portfolios from our previous seasons.
