Art Appreciation Week - Day1

Hey everyone. This week is Art Appreciation Week at our house and it all started today. Each day mommy is going to teach us about a well known artist and we will get to model his work. We also get to do something fun and messy with paint which is our favorite part! Today we learned about Michelangelo. He painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel on his back! We thought that must have been awful tough so we thought we'd give it a try. 
Next, we got to splat paint. Now that was exciting!! We stuffed panty hose with unpopped popcorn and dipped it in paint. Then mommy let us stand on a chair ( I know right? That never happens!) and drop the paint bomb onto the paper. Guess what happens? SPLAT!

We can hardly wait until tomorrow. We are going to learn about some Picasso guy and cubism, whatever that means. Stay tuned...more fun to come!

  1. Grama Lori,
    Mommy let us paint with pudding once before and we loved it! The best part was cleaning up our messy fingers afterwards. Yum:)

    Mommy told us all about you and we can't wait to finally meet you hopefully early this fall!
