On a seemingly unrelated topic I am an art teacher. I used to spend my days teaching 2 year olds about art.
The connection? My new idea is to have a daily "art time" with my boys. (I am ashamed to admit how sparingly I actually put a crayon in my son's hand.) My goal? To do an art project every evening with them between dinnertime and bathtime. (By "them" I mean Miles, and Liam can make snacking on Cheerios artistic if he wants.) My motivation? Well, exposure to art for one.....but if I'm being quite honest, it also has a little bit to do with the cup of tea I plan on enjoying while I'm sitting at the table with them. Do I think it will be a success? Well, it probably depends on your definition of success. As for mine, one night down.
|Lately, Miles has been getting really close to paper whenever he draws or paints. It give you the impression that he is really concentrating, and it totally cracks me up.|
