I admit that I LOVE Impressionist Art and I plan to study several famous artists in this genre this year with my girls.
Last summer my irises flowered in a spectacular display and it reminded me of Van Gogh’s paintings. I decided that this was the perfect time to look at several of his works and then we painted a still life.
(I’ll admit that although the results were really lovely, there were some tears …) I taught art in public schools for 10 years I never saw 1 tear, but being their mom and teacher has a network of emotional connections that spill out … Somehow children process their frustrations and difficulties differently with strangers and acquaintances.
Do you also experience this in your homeschooling ?
How do you work through these moments?
