Home school art...outside

There are some days, like today, when I really love home school. We have been reading the creation story this week and today we decided to paint some of the creation story. Instead of working indoors we took everything outside, it was such a beautiful day. Why stay indoors? This is the beauty of homeschooling, flexibility.

Part two of this project will be the compassion piece. Instead of keeping the pictures we painted, we will share them with someone who is home bound. I have pinpointed someone from my church we can take the pictures to when we visit. She is an elderly lady who does not get out often. After all we have more than our share of art work hanging around and it gives us an excuse to get out to see people. The way I see it, every day is a day of learning and most learning is done outside of the class room walls.

Enjoy the pictures as mother and daughter paint the creation story in our own words. My six year old really enjoyed this art project. She took some great shots at the end. Next photography maybe?

We decided to paint trees and then she said "how about apple trees!"

The kitty is clueless

Pink birds.

Not a bad shot for a 6 year old.

Another great shot!

Art and photography potential?

The last shot she took of our art work.

Art is over, time to clean up, have a snack and get to science.
