Hi there! Falling a bit behind on posts, but hope to catch everything up soon. Turns out that homeschooling takes up a big chunk of my day ;-)
I did want to point out that the post titles refer to what week in the lessons plans our project are from, to make them easier to search. My plan for this year is 2 weeks of CSH, 1 week review. Which has really looked like 2 days one week, 3 days the next, Family vacation, 1 full week.... You get the picture; we just do our best to roll with it!
For art this week we tackled the Bull Leaping Fresco from Week 2. I changed it up a bit, instead of using muslin, I used some burlap I had laying around. We also used 5 minute drywall plaster we had in the garage, both seemed to work just fine!
|Step 1: Sketching our Designs|
|N4 Mixing Drywall Mud|
|Gloves on! Ready to Roll. We spread the plaster on our cloths|
|Time to etch an outline|
Although we intended to only do the plaster as directed, my oldest, L1, REALLY wanted to paint right away (we read somewhere else that frescoes were painted on WET plaster, so that's how he wanted to do it.) So we dove into the Week 3 part right away!
|N4 LOVED spreading his favorite color yellow ALL over!|
|E2 decided to use lots of color.|
I took the liberty of painting a bull over the lovely
background N4 made :-)
