Reggio Emilia Tour Continues

Welcome back to my 'retro-Reggio-tour'
Join me as we take a quick look through two different, brand-new, nationally run programs in Reggio Italy.

I was fortunate enough to have one day to 'tour' two different programs in Reggio. They were nearly an hour's drive apart. An ocean away from the programs I consider home. It's awesome to contemplate the similarities between the programs I visited on this spring day In Reggio and US sites where I am invited. It's awesome to see the similarities!!!


Isn't it fun to see how we all use hand-print and handprint art as a foundational springboard for Arts exploration? This time the handprints are collaborating to make a map of Italy! The map is obviously a cooperative project of 'mature' hands.

Here's a look at wee little Italian finger-paintings. I dare say, you'd be hard pressed to identify children's finger painting in the USA versus those in Italy or those in Australia or Chile. I know that these are 'reggio-finger-painting' explorations because of the Italian labels above the finished work.

Or this click will take you to my Top 10 viewed idea on handprint snowflakes.




Tomorrow I've got a peak at some of the Reggio children's Art portfolios.
Must pull them together. Sweet covers with just a quick glimmer inside.
