My fourteen-year-old daughter came home from her last day of 8th grade with this!! I mean….OMG!! I immediately took about a million photos of it, from all sorts of various angles. I was asking her a million questions, like how did she come up with this idea, how did she make it, did your art teacher just DIE?? Turns out, the assignment was to make something with cardboard. She came up with the idea all by herself (she wants to be an actress, so this was very personal art making), she made it by cutting cardboard and gluing it and painting it (duh), and she didn’t know if her teacher liked it because she never asked. Even more AWESOME!! A completely self motivated art experience with no expectations. Now that I’m done gushing, here are more photos of her masterpiece.
I love how she rolled the cardboard to make little stage lights. And I love the castle bricks, and the clouds…and how she outlined the castle with gold. I also think the seats are brilliant. How long did it take to cut out all of those little chairs? I honestly didn’t know she had this in her, she is not normally a detail oriented girl. But this is what I love most about motherhood…just when you think you know them completely, they surprise you with another layer of their growing self.
I love this theatre, and I love this girl. Thanks for letting me gush!
