BELL’ARTE classes are underway!

A proud second grade artist, In-the-style-of Albrecht Durer, “The Hare”, shown above.

Nine young students sketched and colored and played shape games. First, they sketched a bird from my family room mural. Then they drew a tropical bird, similar to those found in Mona Brookes‘ book, DRAWING WITH CHILDREN, and colored it with colored pencil. We then mounted the drawings on 8X10 wallpaper remnants.

Their homework assignment this week is to read the brief bio about Albrecht Durer and render a likeness of Durer’s famous rabbit.

    I love reading about what you are doing in the land of art. Thanks for talking about Durer… always fun to learn about new artists! You are so creative in the way you teach kids. Wish we had you as the art teacher in Birmingham!
