fine Art: an update

As follow up to my beginning-of-the-schoolyear post “In Pursuit of Art” about an art  program discovery, I am posting some of the children’s work to date.  We are nearing the middle of our year.  Indeed, this is art that is getting done so far!

    Thanks for sharing these … I’m jealous, actually, at what your kids have done! I will definitely show them to my kids (who have to be prodded to produce art that isn’t done hurriedly). It feels good to know that art is getting done along with the academic subjects, doesn’t it?
