I decided we would sculpt with tin-foil! Despite my power point introduction to the subject, suggesting that the students create a range of animals and such fell on deaf ears. It did not take long for and a wide scope of subjects for sculpting came into reality. They certainly had
their own ideas.
First, there was the above rose. A female student sitting in the back ignored the frenetic activity around her and silently produced this amazing flower. I had not done any specific instructions on how to make a rose with tin-foil, but there it was. As you can see it is beautiful.
The fact of the matter was, unlike has often been the case, everyone including the boys got involved in doing art! That of course was a good thing. A little more troubling was some of the subject matter chosen. Tells you were their heads are at doesn't it. Even though it was all fun and games it gives one pause as to what these young students are dealing with. Even who their heroes are.
Let us keep this school in our thoughts and prayers that the students would see the folly of the lifestyle these items portray and make decisions that will embrace Christ who brings "life and peace" into lives.
The two things most human beings would choose above all
- the trouble is, humans do have a knack of choosing precisely
those things that are worst for them.”
