Thanks to Szymon Groman for these photos, video and reflections.
Joseph Chilton Pearce once said; “To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.” I never thought in my life that I would organise an international project day for a group of pupils; and certainly not a day that involves a creative activity. I always saw myself as a person that is cognitively strong but lacks the artistic meaning in life. I prepared a day where my pupils had to make an animal-strength card which involved their own strengths and a reflection of themselves in the animal. They set to work with watercolor paint; a technique with which I myself had little experience but as you can witness with your own eyes; the results were stunning. At the end I accepted my fears and realized that fear had held me back for a long period; I guess both the coincidence of being there at the right time and the baffling pupils had taught me an unforgettable lesson.
