Art Works

Life is a balancing act, isn't it?   Robin commented yesterday that she needs to find a good co-op for the very reason that 2 are, very often, better than 1. We are doing so much more, again, this year than we could ever do on our own, thanks to a great co-op.
 Take  A R for instance... 

 Mrs. S., Bird Lady and art teacher extraordinaire! The kids created everything from penguins to phoenix's. And, seriously, how many of us do paper mache at home?

 Cubs paper mache bird: Fred, the Evil Duck (he's 10, what can I say?).

 Mrs. F does a great job with the younger classes- she is fun and directive and has awesome projects!

 Flower, creating a calender page. She loves art! This project incorporated creating a grid, seasons, dates, writing and creativity, developing fine motor skills. Life skills for 2nd graders!

 Some of the creative Jr. Highers with their mosaic project led by Mrs. H- church history and art. Love it!

 Arent' these cool? Each and every one beautiful and unique!

 Fall themes. Pumpkin art  and cats whose eyes glow in the dark! 

It's hard to balance the demands of homeschooling.  A bit easier with a little help from some friends!

What a great co-op! The projects are beautiful.

Makes me think of that verse in Ecclesiastes 4:9-13 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Thanks for enjoying the art! It is fun. I am so glad you guys are back with us and finding some healing after your tough year.
