Diversion: Art Project

We needed a little break from our normal school routine today, so I pulled good ol’ Storybook Art off the shelf and found an easy project for us to do.

The book was The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton. A beautiful classic.

The project was to divide a large piece of paper into fourths, draw the same picture in each of the four quarters, and then detail each picture with what the child imagined their picture would look like in each of the four seasons.

As usual, I loved watching how each child created and what they came up with, each creation as individual as the creator.

Here they are during the creation process. So focused!

And here are each of them with their finished (or near-finished) products:

It’s good to have a creative outlet now and then. 🙂
