Last week I facilitated a Valentine’s Day art workshop at the college where I teach ESL, and the students’ work delighted me with its playful quirkiness. The natural creativity that surfaces when people sit around a table covered with pictures, glitter glue, thread, markers, stickers, scissors, and ribbon is a joy to behold!

The day after the workshop, I decided to take the abundant leftover materials to one of my classes and repeat the activity. Like the workshop attendees, these students made beautifully imaginative Valentine’s cards with messages both sweet and funny.
