Art This Year

We are kind of winding down art for the year, I think. This has been our most successful art year so far! We have actually done an art project each week and are way ahead of where I thought we would be in our chosen project book, Art Lab for Kids. This book was such a great buy. It is inexpensive, great for a wide range of ages, and has more than enough projects for a whole year. I talk about it a little more here. We did not do every project in the book, but we did a great deal of them. Lately, I think the kids have been getting a bit burnt-out on art, so we have just been picking and choosing between the remaining projects rather than trying to do them all.

 Last week, the boys made paper masks.


With the nicer weather, I plan to start doing nature study and nature journals again on Fridays instead of art projects, at least for awhile.

 I am also looking at some of the other books in the series, specifically Drawing Lab, Paint Lab & Art Lab for Little Kids to use for next year.
