    What amazing learning opportunities! It makes my heart break for the very broken state of public education.

    The Picasso project looks so entertaining. When I saw it, I immediately thought of an assignment an art teacher gave my adult college class: he had us copy a famous painting, but had us turn the painting upside down, and copy it from that perspective. I couldn’t believe how much easier that was.

    If memory serves, he said it was because we weren’t encumbered by fear of not being able to copy the face when all we could see were lines to copy. It worked!

    Kim, thanks for the tip! I will try doing that with one of the kids upcoming art projects and see if it works!

    It is neat to see how your daughter may be spurred on to try the project again in a more challenging way. Wouldn’t have really been an option in public school. Teaching things like art is what makes me most nervous about homeschooling my girls in the future. Glad to see how it can be done. Oh and my mom said they taughe her in her bookkeeping classes that the way to forge a signature is to copy it upside down. Fun to see your mom too. She is such a cutie =)
