The thing with Art

I love it when those little "chuckle out loud" moments happen at school.

I had 4th graders sorting through painted coil pots that have been displayed for a few months. It's that time of year when we begin taking everything down and sending it home.

One little girl looked and looked....not seeming to find the pot she'd obviously labored diligently over, forming then painting with great care just a few months before. She looked and looked to no avail, not finding hers. Then, very casually she remarked, "You know, that's the thing with art, you can't ever remember what yours looks like."

I think that is one of the funniest things I have ever heard...

Hey Danny! It struck me as really funny as well. Just made my day on a tired Friday afternoon.

I won't be teaching art next year...but I don't doubt I'll still get a few chuckles from the crop of 7th graders I'll have. I sure hope so. :)
