Getting to work, some children began crafting instruments and contraptions that could make sounds. Eliza drew a winter night implying the sounds of wind and trees filled with ice and snow. We talked about this idea, and after a few days of work on individual projects, the class divided into groups and began to make sculptures that would capture the sounds of the 4 seasons.

Dangling jewels, glass and metal would make the sound of ice and cold.

The finished sculpture makes its own music, tinkling and ringing when someone opens the door and a breeze comes in.
