Naomi W.'s big adventure!

My cave painting is of myself and two students, returning to school after recess.  I am employed as a teaching assistant at a local elementary school.  For about 20 hours a week, I work with first grade students.  I was inspired to paint this image because I love my job and adore my students.  I created this work on a stone, using red clay mixed with water and oil as paint.  I found a stick with a pointed edge to use as my paintbrush, so I could create lines of different sizes.  I painted a school house in the distance, a cloud above my figure’s head and the sun above the heads of my students.
