This year the Rogers, Arkansas school district received an NEA grant to begin a woodworking program inspired by the Wisdom of the Hands program at Clear Spring School. Laura Waters, art teacher, and parent of Clear Spring School alumni applied for the grant and I have been able to serve as a consultant. Above and at left are photos of her children at work. One of the girls asked Laura as she grew weary of sawing, "Miss Waters, Is this Art or PE?" Laura reports that her children absolutely love working with wood. My thanks to Laura for the photos and congratulations to her for her confidence in putting tools in the hands of children. They will love her for it.
