Art features strongly in our homeschool. Currently Ben and Shira are taking a drawing class at Olde Towne Art. Here is a sample of their work.
I spoke about the teacher who will be coming to our home to give Ben and Shira lessons. Here is some of the work they have done with her.
Shira's frolicking dolphins.
I may leave the real art to the art teachers, but I do more than my fair share of crafts with the kids. This last weekend we made plaster tape Egyptian masks. Shira loved it but Ben complained bitterly about having to sit still while the plaster tape dried and he lost interest in the mask as soon as it was off his face. Shira, on the other hand, had a grand time painting it, even if no Egyptian death mask was ever painted in these colors.
Preparing to apply the plaster tape. We used Saran wrap instead of vaseline. It made clean up so much easier.
Waiting for the tape to dry.
