Anna and her friends

“The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.”

A little bird

When I created my girl, I had no idea I'd find a quote to match it. But then voilà! The quote reflects what I've been through too!
I used oil pastels, acrylics, ink pens and stamps.

“She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. 'Time' for her isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.” 
― Roman Payne



T stands for teachers

Hello T-Gang!

Hope you are well! I'd like to share some photos my daughter took of a project I made with one of my classes last Tuesday  . It was about a Brazilian poet I love so much: Alice Ruiz. The whole school was involved. Each teacher chose a female poet. We baptized the project as Feminine Voices because we only privigiled female writers. All of them are from Brazil.

 My daughter & me - she helped me to adorn my classroom.

 A scale model representing where our poet was born.

Here is a poetic clothes line. Anyone who visited our classroom, got a poem.

 Posters made by the students

Another scale model created by the students.

Whenever a teacher visited our classroom, s/he got a small book with a poem and candies. 
 Here is a library the students created named after the poet we chose.

I work at two public schools. Most of my students are from slums. Sometimes I'd like to make them dream too. Maybe I am wrong but poetry still gives us wings. It was such an immense pleasure to see them involved in our project. I hope they never forget Alice Ruiz.

Have a magical week!
