Escher (Acrostic)

We used Escher’s work in the classroom as part of exploring points of view and perspective. Students would design and draw their Escher-like diagram. I found that the students enjoyed the opportunities to be creative and explore in ways that art reveals the world to us.

Memoirs of a Dragon

Entwined sketches of Time’s sighing Muse

synchronous with Destiny’s voluptuous passions

chaos ….. balanced within each sepia pic

horizons ….. bound within a singular azimuth

escaping papyrus illusions ….. defined his Life

realities generously shared ….. using but pen and paper

About ivonprefontaine

In keeping with bell hooks and Noam Chomsky, I consider myself a public and dissident intellectual. Part of my work is to move beyond (transcend) institutional dogmas that bind me to defend freedom, raising my voice to be heard on behalf of those who seek equity and justice in all their forms. I completed my PhD in Philosophy of Leadership Studies at Gonzaga University, Spokane, WA. My dissertation and research was how teachers experience becoming teachers and their role as leaders. I focus on leading, communicating, and innovating in organizations. This includes mindfuful servant-leadership, World Cafe events, Appreciative Inquiry, and expressing one's self through creativity. I offer retreats, workshops, and presentations that can be tailored to your organzations specific needs. I published peer reviewed articles about schools as learning organizations, currere as an ethical pursuit, and hope as an essential element of adult eductaion. I published three poems and am currently preparing my poetry to publish as an anthology of poetry. I present on mindful leadership, servant leadership, schools as learning organizations, how teachers experience becoming teachers, assessement, and critical thinking. I facilitate mindfulness, hospitality retreats. and World Cafe Events using Appreciative Inquiry. I am writing and researching about various forms of leadership, how teachers inform and form their identity as a particular teacher, schools as learning organizations, hope and its anticipatory relationship with the future, and hope as an essential element in learning.

  3. I love Escher! My brother is an artist and introduced me to his fine artwork. His stairs are the most ‘common’ or most viewed examples so glad you chose the hands… Fantastic post! Smiles, Robin

    • The students found his work interesting. They would discuss the different ways of seeing and understanding his work and try to draw their own Escher-like images.

      Thank you Robin.
