Art Gallery

Joy did a week of day camp at an art school nearby. It seemed to go well, both for art-making and friend-making. She completed a variety of different projects using various mediums and tools, and each day they worked on something new. She also has a drawing book in which they practised their technique and made sketches before doing the final version

She brought home a big bag full of her projects today, and they look amazing.

Evan has also been experimenting with drawing and even a little writing at home, and I included some of his art too.

  7. Love Joy’s pictures, she has lots of talent; must take after grandma Thai? The painting of eagle is so mature you wouldn’t think a seven year old kid could do it.

    Love, Kieu and Claude

  8. From Judy Brydges in Canada: (My goodness Joy certainly seems talented like her Grandma – what wonderful artwork she has created – I’m sure that is not the norm for her age and shows great talent!!)

  9. Love it. I had to get an art teacher for my boy because I can’t come up with activities like these! Thank you for the follow on my food blog, My Holistic Table. I haven’t been able to do much with it, for the homeschooling and the Holistic Journey my readers have made amazing to write on. I hope the How To Eat page there is useful. Blessings.
