Over the holidays we actually completed this week's worth of work. We simply did is Sllllooooooooowly. In ::Art:: we are celebrating the end of our exploration of Raphael Sanzio by painting just like him--well, attempting to. I found a painting that had a fairly straightforward landscape in the background, and the kids went from there. Caelah re-created the blue sky, and gold fields, but transformed the buildings into a castle. She omitted the blond Madonna and child, and replaced them with flowers, deer and snow. That is true artistic interpretation. Elijah went with a humpback whale. Gabriel painted the night sky.
