New Resident Artist: 6 year old Laars

I’m amazed at the artistic talent in so many of our children, particularly since Everette and I aren’t particularly artistic!

Laars has dabbled a little bit with paints but always claimed he wasn’t good at it.  But I suggested he tried again this week, and now he claims “I’m a great artist!” (internalizing what I’ve been telling him!)

His first project this week.  Planet.

I read a cute story to the boys this week concerning perspective.  “The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs by A. Wolf” as told to Jon Scieszka.  Highly recommended.  The result, besides discussing the ‘other side of the story’ was….

3 Little Pigs' Houses, numbered: straw, stick and brick
