“…one way she uses to see things anew is by throwing coins onto a surface and manipulate them into different arrangements.”

In Tharp’s book she says one way she uses to see things anew is by throwing coins onto a surface and manipulate them into different arrangements.

.  As a choreographer the arrangements could be translated into formations of dancers or movements or many things, it’s just a free form activity that helps the mind shift modes.  I tried the activity on Monday and used some random chunky beads from my jewelry making supplies.

This may also be a good activity to help kids categorize objects.  They could pick a qualifier and sort and arrange according to that.  One of my arrangements used only the natural wood feeling beads.  To do two outer circle layers I told myself I would not use two of the same type of bead, so they would all look different. In one sort I used only dull/ muted colors Etc.

  1. Fun art exercise for kids. Kind of like sand art that’s temporary. Take a picture to save a favorite. No worries if you decide to change direction or start over.
