A la Arte Carnival

Our co-op put on a fantastic Art Carnival recently.

The kids submitted pieces for the gallery ahead of time. I loved the photographs they selected.

The boys took a wonderful class on color and composition with a docent from the Baltimore Museum of Art. Brad thoroughly enjoyed it, answering and asking many of his own questions.

Brooke took a class with another docent and burned her own slate of wood.

Brian really enjoyed shaping a polka-dotted dog out of Crayola Model Magic.

Brad contentedly wandered the stations, paying special attention to each one. Here he is imitating the use of pattern and color, much-used by Henri Matisse.

Breanna found her niche with fingerpaints. She’d never used them before ~blush~ but fell in love with them immediately.

I hear there’s a Science Carnival coming up…
