    Yes indeed we are truly lucky to have Mrs.Goodwin as a teacher, the map Haiku's were a definitely a great way for us to get back in touch with our creative side. We were able to utilize many different techniques in painting, sewing, and many other intricate design principles. Definitely enjoyed this project.

  10. Amazing. Weslee likes them, too. I wondered if any of the symbols are actual words (kanji)? Kris is on vacation, so I can't ask her.
