Daily Doodle: Portrait Invite


We're spending the week working on portraits and personal traits.
Any time I inject several Art Invitations into our planning, the results are busy hands and happy hearts.
Not to mention, unique art every time.


Don't be fooled with portraits, as they involve just as much math as art.
We talked about proportions, shape and comparison of features in terms of size and position.




Vegan Bites: Birthday Jam


"Can I make C jam for her birthday?
That way when she wakes up, she can have it on her toast."

Nothing better than a homemade gift you can eat!

Getting to Know You: Portrait & Interview

 

Every year, we conduct a YOU interview and some sort of Self Portrait Art.
It amazes me that these kids I spend so much time with, continue to surprise me with who they are becoming. It's good to take time and hear what they have to say about themselves.
Also a great way to learn where their passions lie, for interest-led learning!
 
This year we completed Cardboard Portraits by The Artful Parent https://artfulparent.com/2016/10/art-workshop-for-children-cardboard-portraits.html

Math Monday: Big to Small


Cutting shapes large to small and in between was a piece of cake. Layering involved some challenge!
