One thing I love about living in Southern Oregon is that this area is extremely homeschool friendly. We were happy to find an art studio nearby that offers homeschool art classes to kids! The girls love their teacher, and enjoy one lesson per week at the studio. Most of the time, they are the only kids in their class–so they get a lot of attention.
Their teacher decided to have an art exhibit for the kids (there ended up being 3 other students that displayed). The kids each stood up and told us a bit about some of their favorite art pieces. It was very cute!
I make no excuses for her clothes…except that she picked her own, and she decided how to wear them (i.e. skirt became a dress).
Ella was explaining the different mediums that were used for her pieces (pastels, watercolors, magic marker/pencil, salt, etc).
The kids were each given two ribbons, and asked to pick two of their favorite art pieces. I quietly encouraged my girls to try to make sure that every student was awarded a ribbon, and so they very thoughtfully selected which art piece/student to award. It was lovely to see them do it with concern for each child’s feelings!
