Today we finished up our “American Pie” art class at the Trumbull Butler Art Museum. Our sculptures had two weeks to dry, and were ready for paint.
O6 worked on her slice of pizza and Olympic Rings first. We looked up a picture of the rings on my phone to make sure we had the correct colors.
Next, she painted her Seattle Space needle and the Saturn Five Rocket. I had to chuckle at the shade of purple she chose for the rocket, but the silver for the needle base was spot-on.
S8 worked very efficiently and was done in no time.
Her models were a little less detailed and didn’t have anywhere near the amount of overlap that O6 had, though.
I thought she did a good job on the Statue of Liberty. The daddy eagle is especially good, IMO.
Since we finished up early, Mrs. George let us paint or draw for a while. S8 chose to paint, and made a very interesting abstract piece:
O6 wanted to use the oil pastels. She ended up bringing this home to work on later:
Sadly, this is the last art class until the new year. We’ll make up for it with activities at home, though.
We left art class and headed down to Canfield for our violin group lesson. We were an hour early, so we stopped at Fair Park for a few minutes of blowing off steam. It was a really nice day to be outside.
The kids made friends with a little 2-year old boy named DJ, who followed them everywhere (so cute!) and a girl named Ciera, who was five or six.
But all too soon, it got dark and was time for us to go to violin. We went to group and practiced the Christmas piece for about 45 minutes at Tina’s.
