Summer Art Lessons, Entry 1

This last home school year I made big plans to teach art to the kids. We did not get to it very often. We are going to try to get in some art this summer.

I saw a beautiful piece of art on pinterest done, I think, by a first grader. It was painted strips of paper weaved together and mounted on black paper. You can see it here: Inspired by that artwork, students in the Edward Hale Art Institute made the following works of art.

This shows Edward’s weaved painted strips. Since he has a broken arm the strips were painted and weaved by Nikole without any input from Edward.

There you go… Day one of classes at the Edward Hale Art Institute is complete. I wanted to change the name of the institute to The Edward Hale Academy for Young Endurance Athletes, but my students were not receptive.
