Our Dinner Party Brunch

Beginning in March, my students learned about Judy Chicago’s, “The Dinner Party”. For our ceramics unit, the students were required to create a three piece place setting that was a symbolic tribute to a significant person in their life. That person could be real or fictional, living or deceased. As a closure activity, we planned a brunch!

For the past three days, I got to share a meal with all of my students! What a delight. We brought in food to share and ate off of our handmade place settings. It was a pot-luck style meal that made me feel very lucky indeed!
