Van Gogh Eat Your Heart Out!



Or cut your ear off, whatever. I signed up the boys for a month long art class. When Graham found out he responded: "But I already know how to do art."

Greg, as expected, embraced it. I have to say that Greg has some potential with this sort of thing. He knew exactly what he was going to draw and when done, lifted his marker in the air and yelled, "Ta-DAAAA!" When I asked him to tell me about the grey lines inside his body, he replied, "Those are my BONES!" (Duh, mom, come on.) What 3 year old draws bones in their body outlines?

Graham improved on the social front. The children were asked who would like to show us your drawing and Graham (usually quite shy and reserved in group settings) popped his hand right up. He stood in front of his drawing and explained to the entire group of children and adults what was what. I was impressed.

Both boys left the class very happy and we all had a fun time. Best part? Me not having to clean up a big ole craft mess in my house every Tuesday morning for a month.

Meg said the same thing when we mentioned piano lessons: "but I already know how to play the piano!"

Too cool. Where do they do it? How much etc.? I think my kids would love it and I wouldn't have to clean up a mess. Details...

Woo Hoo for art classes.
