I've always loved going to my friend, Lillie's house, because it's full of wonderful art. She is a kindergarten teacher, and her house is filled with vibrant color, artifacts from all over the world, and... kid art! Last time I was there she told me about an adult dinner party she had where she pulled out a Make-a-Plate kit she had left over from an event in her class. All of the guests did a plate, and now she and her family eat off of them every day. What a wonderful way to remember your friends, and to honor creativity! Here is a snapshot of one of the plates (sorry for the yucky quality of the picture). Moral of the story: Make a Plate is not just for kids (nor is any other kind of art!).
