If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

Noodle Kaboodling

This weekend the arts festival was open to the public and I was assigned the booth most likely to have the highest traffic.  Noodle Kaboodle.

Swim “noodles” had been cut into discs by the wonderful women in the supply room. Each child gets a paper plate with one disc hot glued in the center (also prepared by aforementioned w.w.) The child then builds a sculpture using several loose ones, toothpicks and other plastic foam shapes.

My job was to hand out plates, foam and toothpicks, engage the artist (or not) in conversation about their creations, and help he/she put it into a plastic bag to take home.

It was non-stop. Friday night 5-9, Saturday 10-9, and Sunday 1-5.  A huge success. I’m exhausted!




Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.  Pablo Picasso

  1. Now that looks like serious fun! Love that Picasso quote…

  2. yes, me, too, love the Picasso Quote. Are you teaching arts? Or art-student-teachers?

    • I teach “teachers”…in an alternative certification program…the arts council uses me in their festival because I write:)
      I’d like to think I’m learning the art of living…

      • learning the art of living… this sure sounds mindful and good. I like this.
        Your Job sounds really interesting.
        I am teaching at a Special School (classroom teacher of a bunch of Teenagers ^^) and will start an art therapy certificate in october.
        Have a wonderful day!
