Art Class: The Study of Asian Art

In our girl's co-op Art class yesterday, they studied Asian Art. Their teacher, Mrs. Kuhns, brought a special gift her great uncle gave her - a kimono from Japan. She let some of the girls try it on and told the story of how it was made from silk and at least 70 years old. She also brought with her some Asian figurines on a stick - some were at least 100 years old. They were all given a figurine to sketch then paint with water colors. She also read to them a story from "Chinese Fairy Tales" while they painted. I think they all did a fabulous job and I loved how their final paintings turned out - all unique in their own special way...
