I like to keep the children’s names separate from the online world - so I will refer to our little man as Wee Da Vinci for blog purposes. I will also keep a blog with just his artwork, this is a great way to save all those special drawings and I think he would like his own spot for that - weedavinci.blogspot.ca
I showed them images of Egyptian art, showed them how much they loved their cats and would included them in their artwork. We talked about hieroglyphics as well - and gave each child a guide to use to write their name in hieroglyphics.
I encourage you to get involved with your child’s school. Go to the Home & School meeting, talk to their teacher, help out at lunchtime or in the library. The children will get to know you, you will get to know the staff. The benefits are huge.
I taught them how to draw a cat then went around and helped them with their hieroglyphics.
Then they used oil pastels to colour their artwork. We did a wash of blue tempura paint. The kids thought is was great.
Looking forward to our next project. Any ideas for spring please share them!
