Our first art lesson in October was with our new sketchbooks! The girls don’t always love to draw so this little surprise bought me some time to work with them on this skill:-) The girls picked items from a basket at random to draw. We drew sunflowers, gourds, pumpkins, leaves, pine cones, and little pottery owl. I timed the girls to help them stretch out the time that they spent on each object. The result was some beautifully detailed drawings! This past Monday we painted pumpkins! I really love our painted pumpkins. Two have Starry Night, two have Edvard Munch’s The Scream, and won has zombie Mona Lisa!
