Here's another art lesson the kids did a few weeks ago. They learned a little about Paul Klee and his painting Head of a Man Going Senile. This was a fun lesson!
|First they drew their man and divided him into different shapes.|
|Then they used chalk pastels to color him in.|
|The chalk pastels were kinda messy with dust, but they had fun using them. They had to rub them to make it all smooth.|
|Then they cut their heads out.|
|Now it's time to make the background. They smeared paint around using a plastic card which created all kinds of cool shades.|
|How cool are those pictures?!?! I love them!|
We had a fun, but busy weekend. Saturday the boys each had a soccer game. In between the games I tried to clean the house and get laundry done. Then Sunday the boys and I all went to the mall and we finally bought a new mattress!! I am sooo excited about it and cannot wait to sleep better...hopefully! Then we went to a birthday party in the afternoon. Chris made a yummy stir fry for dinner...I was grateful he cooked so I could finish up my chores. How was your weekend?
