… where I saw this but it is true!
I remember my first lessons as an Art teacher, I was ready, I had my resources, I had exploration activities set to go involving food dye.
At recess I ran to the phone and called my friend Kerry – also an Art teacher, also doing these activities that day. When she came on the line I told her, “Don’t do the activity, we got the paper wrong!”
She said two simple words, “Too late!”
That day there were two art rooms flooded with food dye, because as it turns out litho paper doesn’t absorb like cartridge paper would have. Pools of dye on the tables, pools of dye on the floors … we live and learn.
