A good day for art
Today was a good day. We went to the homeschool art day at a different county library. The kids really had a good time putting their projects together and looking at what the other kids had brought to display. All the projects were so unique. My older ds drew a LARGE picture of him and his cousins battling a dragon in oil pastels. Younger ds did a Lego mosaic of Mario. And dd did a finger painting (pic). There were acrylics, watercolors, paper mache, Lego, etc on display. One of the moms demonstrated a watercolor painting that really impressed the boys. I don't have an artistic bone in my body, so I'm glad they could get a chance to see someone who does in action. They also played with some air drying clay from Crayola that was fantastic. I'm going to have to get me some of that.
And the kids were so well behaved. The boys said nice things about every project. Older ds sat with dd and shared his snacks with her. He even listened when I told him he couldn't have any more snacks except carrots (after his second trip the the snack table). I was so impressed with them.
Hooray for art, libraries, and homeschooling!
