Learning in Freedom

Welcome to Learning in Freedom, a blog all about the learning adventures (and mishaps) of the Allen family. My four children are unschooled, following their interests and passions every day and living the lives of their choosing. The purpose of this blog is to share our every day lives (and my not-so-humble opinons) with anyone interested in stopping by. We hope this will give a glimpse of how natural learning unfolds from day to day......

Imagination Tribe!

After a holiday hiatus, our local Imagination Tribe gathered for some arting. This time hosted at our house. It was just what I needed.....

artsy supplies....



artsy kids....




artsy mamas.....











Oh, and some art!





Laura showed us a really cool technique, using TAPE to transfer pictures. Way kewl. Jess's Mom Carolyn came along for the fun and Susan showed up too. Always a good time, with good friends and food and good stuff....

Unfortunately I didn't get a pic of Austin before he had to leave the gathering. I'll get ya next time dude!;)

Some of the lovely I.T. ladies for the January gathering. See you next month!



Left to right is Jess's dd Aleah, Jess, Carolyn, myself, Susan and Laura. I can't describe what this group means to me or how much fun it is to art and talk with such a cool bunch of women and children.

My mom had such a good time, she loved meeting you all and commented on what fun we must have. I totally agree and am so grateful for our friendship, gatherings, and the inspiration of everyone's creativity. Thanks to you all who make this special but especially to the kids, whom make it all happen everyday! Can you feel the hugs!!! Jess

Imagination Tribe! What a great name. I am so glad to have found your blog! Feel free to check mine out as well (I got your link through TNUnschooling). Maybe one day I can take a road trip and meet up with you and your group of artsy mamas!

Maybe you might like to help me spread the word about my organization that happens to be by the same name: www.artsymamas.org!
