new apron and art

Ok so I wanted to make this new apron that I got from Montessori by hand lady by the way her site in in my blogs I go to area

I am also getting ready to teach a 9 week block with the 7th grade on water color painting and charcoal drawing ...and it has to go along with their main lesson work

Hello, haven't stopped by this last week, all the projects look great. The seventh grade paintings and charcoal look great, too.

I just wanted to add an insight into the "Apron Theory", I worked in a Waldorf Kindergarden for several years, mostly the sharing of the etheric body is with the younger children esp. 3 year old . I have worked both in the nursery K (3-5) and the Kindergarden (4 1/2-6) and I was definitely more drained by the end of the day with the younger ones. One helpful thing to do is to wear rose and lavender oil over your heart area, this protects the etheric force as well. The apron also represents the archetypal "Mother" image (hence the long skirts and dresses every kindergarden teacher wears).

I enjoy your blog:)
