Homeschool Art Class 11/9/12
All week long the children looked forward to Art Class. Last week they were told that they would be making shields this week to go along with learning about Romans. That was our first project and Friday which was a good thing because they were so excited about it. I love how each of the children's different personalities show through their art work. Alex's shield was just like Captain America's. Nick's was Tim Tebow #15 with a #18 down in the corner. Anthony drew knights on his, and Lily and Christian just did random colors. The shields were made out of a think foam board with a cardboard handle attached with duct tape. The children used marker and chalks to do their designs. Unfortunately after they finished them, it was hard to get the children to put the shields down and focus on their other projects so class was cut a little short. They did some more drawings of the Colosseum and Roman chariots, this time using the art easels. They also made their teacher Thanksgiving drawings to post at the Art Center. We will not have class for the next two weeks because of the holiday and a bazaar taking place at the center on our class day. After class the weather was beautiful so we headed off to the park for a picnic.
