“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”
Welcome to Magic Marker Monday! If you haven’t heard about Magic Marker Monday yet, click here and then hurry right back…
I like to sneak in a little learning along with arts and crafts time around my place.
So while my six-year-old happily snipped a fairy castle out of gold metallic orgami paper, I told her about an artist from a long time ago named Giovanni Cimabue.
We looked at his artwork online and talked about the way he liked to use golden hues and metallics in his work. We giggled as we learned to properly pronounce his name (chee’-mah-boo’-eh) and I applauded her metallic masterpiece.
We just started up first grade homeschool for the year in August and have resumed our art lessons with Artistic Pursuits K-3 Book 2. We’re still loving this curriculum!
What has your little artist been up to this week? Link up and share!
Note: Due to ongoing issues with Mr. Linky, we have switched over to MckLinky for Magic Marker Monday Posts…
