One of the highlights of the children's school year finishing up, is the art work that comes home!
I have posted before of how much I love the art of children in those years before the dreaded eye of self criticism kicks in. I have been inundated with wondrous works from my son - I absolutely adore his explanation and description of the process and what he was trying to do.
I love this precarious tea light tower - he very proudly demonstrated how it worked, albeit daytime. He told me how he made the slabs and joined them, how he attached the decoration. This piece is so priceless to me in so many ways.
The painting was another favorite of mine - I am amazed at the depth he has created and the detail (he is not a patient child) on the dragon. They used rock salt which gave the wonderful texture. Nice to see one of the family creating some art!
