J took a week class over the summer through the Museum of Fine Arts, and he was all over it. He’s always loved to color and do all things artsy, and he was in love with the class and all of the fun stuff he got to do. Our hope was to have him in their semester classes, but the homeschool time doesn’t work in our schedule and the regular after school classes would mean a nightmare of driving in rush hour home from the Museum district. So, we opted for Artistic Pursuits while he waits to take a few more classes next summer. He’s used to be able to do free-form art in any way he likes while at home, so it was a bit of a mind-set change for him to have a plan of attack. Having an art box that he can only use during art was extremely appealing to him, though, and his eyes sparkled when he saw the great huge box of crayons he gets to use! Two weeks in, and he looks forward to doing “Art Friday.” Little brother has even gotten in on the action! It’s been amazing watching his little creative muscles grow, and it doesn’t hurt to have a few pretty new pieces of art to display!
