feeling at home here at the art group this week as we welcome a new member and continue our board game making. Trying to invent something new rather than using dice for our board games, such as a chinese fortune teller. Kenneth is still on his poem this week even tho he is finding it tricky he knows inspiration will come.

Tuesday art group

Art group today: busy, noisy with discussion and lots of making for our individual board games, we started by making the dice, a fruit machine dice, a dice with letters instead of numbers and a dice with instructions.

Peter was enjoying reading one of the books from the resource section: he says 'boy from dingle, jungle warfare, a war that no one cares about' stay posted for his review. 
Art Group today! Last week we started to create our own boardgame, will it get finished today? Or will something new be drawn, painted, created or written.
