Students practiced using various media though this process such as liquid watercolor, oil pastel and chalk pastel.

Finger Labyrinths by the 5/6 classes

What Are Labyrinths? Labyrinths differ from mazes though the two are often confused. A labyrinth is a spiral walking course having a single, winding, unobstructed path from the outside to the center. Unlike a maze that can be confusing, trick the mind and disorientating, a labyrinth calms the mind and relaxes the individual. What is a Finger Labyrinth? A finger labyrinth functions in much the same way as a full-size walking labyrinth (to further relaxation and focus) except that the user traces the path to the center using their finger rather than walking. For many, this combination of movement (tracing the path) with introspection (eyes closed) offers a different way to relax and focus.   fullsizerender-24 fullsizerender-23 fullsizerender-22 fullsizerender-21
