Two groups (‘Groep Groen’ & ‘Groep Paars’) in SBO Het Spectrum in Amsterdam did an art project with me. In the first lesson we went outside to pick up small pieces off the street and collect them in small plastic bags. In the second lesson they created animals with what they had found, glueing them together in cigar boxes. And in the third lesson they made name tags for their art works and decorated the animal houses with paint. They also learned how to create new colors from red, yellow, blue and white: orange, purple, green, pink, etc. Many thanks to Straatjutter (Krista Peters) for the inspiration and De Rode Loper op School for giving Petra Veenstra and me the chance to do this work with the Papageno Foundation.
