With Thanksgiving right around the corner, our subject of study on Wednesday morning was the turkey. We referenced several images of turkeys, noticing their distinct characteristics. We also spent some time looking at images by the living artist Karlee Rawkins. The children used white charcoal, soft pastel, found papers and paint to create their turkeys.
Our walk to the museum took a bit longer than we'd planned.
The snow was too much fun.
When we returned from the MIA, the children referenced their sketch pads to create drawings/paintings while using charcoal and watercolors.
Thank you, Parents, for enrolling your children!
And thank you to Maxine's Mom for recommending I schedule a class on this date.
We'll see some of you on Saturday, December 13 from 1:30-4:30.
We're going to be taking our painting practice one step further and creating coasters, paintings on clay tiles. With your child's permission, these can be given as gifts.
Our Weekday Workshops on Mondays and Tuesdays, December 22+23 and December 29+30 from 9am-noon are full. I will have assistants for both Tuesdays we travel to the MIA. Thank you to Harper's Mom for recommending I add additional dates!
I hope you had a beautiful holiday and that it can continue in some way
today as well as through the weekend.
I am very grateful to all of you for supporting and valuing what I do.
