Meg's Art Class

This semester we had the opportunity to enroll Meg in an art class with the gracious and gifted Mrs. Hartnett. We're so grateful that we were able to do it. Our girl just loves this class and considers it the highlight of her school week.

Early this week I emailed Mrs. Hartnett regarding a folder that Meg accidentally left at class. During our exchange, Meg's teacher complimented her on her "naturally whimsical style." Then on Wednesday afternoon, Meg brought home a project that I thought captured that whimsy perfectly. Here is the original portrait, a still of "Susan" from The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.

And here is Meg's copy.

It is such fun to watch her explore and develop her gifts!

AAAH! I love this. If only we could all have triangles for a nose and a mouth, and be a slightly yellowish hue. I love the way children see the world. I want to have those kinds of eyes.
