“Fun with Flag (pages)” was had by all.
Adults and children alike created marvelous flag book creations and had a blast in the process!
Participants learned to fold an accordion spine, add covers, and attach the flag pages on alternating sides of the spine to create a pattern that changed as the book was opened.
After the flag book was “built” (books and buildings have a lot in common…but that is a subject for another post…)
the real (well, that depends on your definition) fun began…filling, embellishing and developing the book!
Participants used images and text from magazines,
expressing their interests, thoughts, and ideas…
choosing what they wanted to express
with the materials at hand.
Some chose to draw by hand.
Some laid forth their content using repeated elements, like a graphic designer.
Others asked questions.
And some put it all together thematically.
All in all, a most remarkable experience.
