Another exciting thing that happened last Friday was that C got to check out a book from his school's library for the first time. The kindergartners spend a lot of time learning about the library before they actually get checking out privileges. C chose a book entitled "Snow" because of "all the beautiful pictures".
Yesterday we decided to check out Art Quest at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts for the first time. The kiddos LOVED it! There are about 15 hands-on art projects that they can jump in and do all by themselves. There were digital projects, blocks, still life drawings, painting, writing on a Plexiglas wall, animation, printmaking, tissue art, paper rolling, and probably more that I didn't get pictures of. I actually think I wasn't supposed to be taking pictures at all...oops.
We took a break after a few projects to eat our lunch outside. It was a beautiful day. We were sort of on the roof and had great views of downtown around us.
This was my art. It reminded me of pomping our Homecoming floats in high school!
C was working the printing press! It was really cool and I plan to frame the little prints they made.
