Some fine art!

April 10, 2007

Journal, Lauren, School

Since we missed Easter due to Lloyd’s illness, it was nice to be able to share the Easter story daily with the preschoolers. To re-tell the story, we use Resurrection Eggs, a wonderful teaching tool that has plastic eggs wtih symbols of Easter inside – a plastic donkey, crown of thorns, a stone, etc.

My kids came up with some pretty great drawings on their own. It’s so neat to see how far they’ve come from their ‘circles with legs’ stage. Here is a sampling of their work:

Just about the best drawings ever.

Josh’s says, “Good Friday when Jesus was whapped.” Reece drew Jesus on the cross, complete with nails and crown of thorns, and Riley has the soldier throwing dice for Jesus’ clothes. Thanks, Resurrection Eggs! Thanks, Jesus!

    Hey, you can’t miss Easter!

    It came without visting, it came without eggs ,
    It came without baskets, bunnies or kegs,
    It came just the same, without any games,
    Easter morn we were freed, He is risen indeed!

    And keep that Reese print. You’ll have an original when her works are later displayed in the Guggenheim and Louve!

    A preschool in Baltimore had an auction where they sold the kids’ art. I was in a pretty fierce bidding war for some of it. I only got a couple, because their parents were shelling out big bucks for their stuff.

    You gotta love real art!

    Josh’s picture looks like The Cat in the Hat is handling the whip.
    My kids loved those Resurrection Eggs when they were younger. They are awesome!

    He’s realistically depicting the toothbrush top of a 33 A.D. soldier’s helmet, thank you very much. It’s required learning for preschool! We have standards!!!

    (Ha! Since you’ve opened the door for critiquing, I think his Jesus looks alot like a chicken.)

      I thought so too, but didn’t want to be too picky -- he IS a preschooler after all!
