One of my favorite classes in college was Art Appreciation. I also had a class for teaching art to children, great fun! Anyway, I've been patiently waiting for our oldest child to be able to do some fun things with art. Last week we tried an exercise from ArtProjectsForKids. It was creating your own water lily garden inspired by the artist Monet.
I was telling my husband that the results were not what I expected because I had purposely not shown her Monet's original because I wanted her to use her own imagination. His answer "Well we can't have a copy of Monet can we?!"
