15 minutes walk from downtown Fribourg and you feel like you are in the middle of nature. Few cities can boast with that. This might be the most amazing thing about this place.
Today instead of art we did an easy STEM project…easy to build but not as easy to imagine and also to design the trajectory for the small wooden balls so they fill each of the plastic cups at the bottom of the board.
J’ai fait une petite exploration urbaine avec mon mari aujourd’hui matin, nous avons emprunté le sentier Ritter jusqu’à l’Abbaye de la Maigrauge, qu’on n’avait jamais vue. J’adore ce chemin, c’est comme un jardin caché au millieu de la ville.
This new painting is inspired by the Christmas Carol with the same name, Little Drummer Boy.
FriBoy doesn’t have school on Wednesdays, instead he has #ArtsyWednesdays with me. We always do arts and crafts on Wednesdays, it’s almost like a ritual.
FriBoy made this drawing of us for my birthday and I was inspired to paint it like this after I saw an exhibition, The Boomerang Effect at the Ethnographic Museum of Geneva. It’s my favorite place in Switzerland and I wanted to spend my birthday there.
This is a new painting, or visual story how I like to call it, in my journey of initiation series.
Sometimes I find it frustrating that Lausanne, Geneva or Zürich have more to offer to children from the cultural point of view than Fribourg, especially on Wednesdays when I am out of ideas what to do with FriBoy. The good part is that in Switzerland these distances can be easily covered.
I think one of the most humbling experiences one can live is to learn a trade from a different culture, even more so from someone who has no formal education.
