Artistic Endeavors

Our Artist this term is Leonardo DaVinci. Ordinarily, I would arrange art projects separately, but the DaVinci book I threw in my cart on a whim actually has related art projects in it. How cool is that??? I’ll be sure to look for one of these each term now. I’ve got Artist Study slated for Mondays.

We’ll read Katie the first week, and then start Leonardo at 7ish pages per week. I’d like to do at least 6 and preferably more art projects per term, depending on complexity. I’ll shoot for Artist Study once per week, for about an 1/2 an hour. The movie has some bonus material in it that I’d like us to see, so I will count on it taking 2-3 hours to watch both. I’m not sure when we’ll do it yet, but probably not in the first three weeks. Well do at least one art project on our specials days, so the children don’t feel rushed. Because if we do it on a normal day, they will. Because I will rush them. See, I’m learning, too. Instead of picking projects for them in advance, I’ll just mention the projects as we go, and get the materials for the ones the kids get excited about.
