Art Class

The kids attend a really fantastic art studio each Wednesday. They have been going there for a year and a half so far and we certainly hope to continue. They have been taking a class called "Art through the Ages". It is an art history class and this year they have mostly studied ancient history and spent quite some time on Egypt. After the Christmas break they moved along to later centuries. Right now they are studying Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel. They were extra excited to attend class today because they were painting lying on the floor with their art taped to the underside of a table to pretend they were Michelangelo painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. They had to bring their favorite scene to sketch and then begin painting it.
I rarely go into their class as I would just be in the way, and as a homeschool Mom I think it's great for us to all have little corners of time that are all our own. When I sit in the lobby I can hear all the children talking and laughing! It's such a happy place!
Isabelle is laughing here and trying to hide from the camera. They are not used to seeing me at their class!

Here they are lying on the floor beginning their painting!
