I found this really neat site from an art teacher and she uses famous painters and paintings to teach her students. The directions are specific enough I think most people can figure it out. I love that she states what grade she did the projects with so you know what age level will work for your child.
Nothing says Christmas like the kids gathered around a table and decorating a gingerbread house. Dumping all the candy on the table and watching them build snowmen or Christmas trees. Just looking at these picturesque houses brings back memories of a simpler time.
Unless you live in my house.
Now I am not saying it is ALL my son’s fault, just that as soon as he saw the box he said “I am going to build some bunkers!”
I tried to show them the sweet ideas suggested by the manufacturer, but no. We had to have enough guns to show our military superiority.
So now instead of looking at a cute little house and thinking of how sweet it was of the boy to decorate a house with his sisters, all I hear is the Rocky theme song when Ivan got his hiney kicked!!
Over time art has taken many forms. While the written word has long been appreciated for it’s ability to touch people, a dear friend has combined it with modern technology so beautifully I had to share.
Nothing can beat the art created in nature. Here is the bouquet Reina received for her performance in Jack and the Beanstalk this week.
Adding flowers to your weekly shopping list adds color to your home during these dark months of the year. Don’t forget this easy and simple, calorie free hostess gift this holiday season.
Honestly I really have no talent. But I thought i would share some of what my kids are capable of and others would share their projects. Art should be admired.
