Art and Museums

It was a 2 day lesson, but we sure had fun. I received in the mail a copy of the Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci and a copy of Water Lily Pond by Claude Monet. It was inspiration! On the back of each picture was some information about the painting, the artist and the time period. Using that info, I was able to give a decent mini lesson to the Princess' on the artwork. As soon as Daddy got home though it was time for some hands on experience.
Even Princess R tried her hand at it. (just kidding, she wouldn't even hold the brush)
After our painting excursion we set them out overnight to dry. This morning we put together our very own art museum. While putting it together we talked about how at museums you don't touch the art. You just look at it. Hopefully one day next week we will make it to a local museum to try out what we learned.
