An Arty Afternoon



Josh’s latest unit of inquiry is How We Express Ourselves and they have been learning about art.  Upon coming home from school today, he grabbed my dad’s book of paintings from the shelf and started leafing through.  He said he was looking for “inspiration.”

Then he got out some watercolor paper, brushes, a palette, and watercolor paints.  Zoë, who was doing something else at the time, wanted in on the action, too.  So both of them got on the floor and started painting away.
