Yay for Art Day

Thursdays are Art Day here at our home school. We have been having a good time creating together. Usually some of the kids of another home school family who live a few blocks away walk down to do the art project with us. It makes for a fun time for everyone involved (teacher included). So far we have made: me posters, rubbings collections, potato prints, slot sculptures, color spinner pull yo-yos, and woven paper. Each week we learn an art vocabulary word. I make the oversized vocab cards with card stock. The top line is the term, the second line is the definition and finally the card has an example of the term. Some of my projects I find at the Art Attack web site. I love art!

  1. I hate that we missed today. It looks like you had lots of fun. Thank you so much for doing this and for inviting my kiddos along. You’re a great mom, homeschool teacher and friend.

  2. Art is so much fun! I miss the little art class I used to do with my neices and nephews. I’ll have to come up with something for the summer when I’m not working.

    Lovely art (and kiddos).

  3. I’m so impressed with all of your special “days” and activities. Maybe you’ll write a how-to book on home schooling some day?!
