The ESL camp students have been creating pages for a book they will construct tomorrow. With nature as their inspiration, they are exploring abstract, botanical imagery. For this lesson, they found a passage, circled relevant words and then painted over the ones they didn't want. Later, drawing and collage was added to the page.

"With more free time, I am working to go back to my roots and explore the possibilities of drawing and painting. With my educational goals met, it is now time to focus on my own inspiration in order to keep the atmosphere in my classroom fresh."
