Homeschool Art Class Week 2

Today was the 2nd week of our homeschool Art Class.  The children had a good time.  The instructor is trying very hard to prepare activities that will appeal to a the wide age range that we have.  She even had some stuff out for our littlest ones who are not even really taking the class just hanging out waiting for their older siblings. They really enjoyed the little table with the play dough and the table that was set up just with paper and crayons so they could draw if they wanted to.  There were different stations set up for the older children too.  Easels were set up so they could do a drawing, play dough so they could sculpt, paper plates so they could design masks, and they also made houses out of Popsicle sticks that they will paint next week.  She had some paper with chalk pastels for the children to draw a Roman Town.  Alex went over and started drawing his town complete with telephone poles and a satellite dish.  She told him they didn't have those things in Ancient Rome he must be making a modern Roman Town.  I explained to her that we haven't covered that time period in history yet and he had no idea what she wanted.  He was pretty proud of his town anyway.  Chelsea was only there for a short time because she was out at the fair doing an educational program for the elementary school and only had time to do a drawing which I did not get a picture of before it got put away.
