Art Class

Isn't it just like a Van Gough? Pip drew this! The others did pretty well too. The gallery is up on our dining room wall right now, four versions of "Sunflowers". We went outside, and the children sat on the grass to observe and draw. Here they are, (sorry for the thumb!):

That was a good art class! The next week (last week) we looked closely at a painting Van Gough made of sunflowers (his were in a vase) and then tried to draw it. I don't need to tell you that the painting was in a book, alas for us, not on our wall! So now we have two sets of "Sunflowers" on the dining room wall. They're pretty bright and sunny! Good thing, because just on Saturday we cut down the sunflowers, all dead now, and started drying the heads for the seeds!
