These 2 young artists are such a fantastic combination! They love checking in on each other’s work. Scarlett wants Jack to watch her paint and Jack wants Scarlett to watch him paint. Don’t worry parents! I sit in between them! They are so cute!!!! Scarlett had to show Jack her new hair cut. She was very dramatic about it:) Jack was very impressed! We started the class with an Art History lesson – “The Nativity with Angels and Prophets”, Duccio, early 1300′s. We found baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph and the shepherds. We discussed the “halos” also. Note AH category. After AH, the artists sponged the 5 basic shapes I had cut out of cardboard. They had a little trouble remembering the “oval.” They looked to each other for help in remembering:) Oh, I demonstrated the process first. I asked the artists what “demonstrate” meant. After looking to each other for the answer I told them the definition. Jack’s response was, “Well Ms. Ronda, I was still thinking:)”. Love these 2! We then worked on their projects. Scarlett worked on a Christmas present painting – a secret and Jack worked on his shark painting. Several times while they were painting we had to observe each painting. How precious! I emphasized following direction during the lesson. The artists did a great job. Thank you God for my job.
