Weekly Wrap Ups - Shapes, Shading and Transplanting

Among many activities that our Homeschool Circus has been up to the past two weeks, these are the highlights.

First up, in our Non-Co-op Co-op is our Meet the Masters class.  

My 9 year old learned about Simple Shapes and Joan Miro.  This was a piece of cake for her.

My middle and high schoolers were challenged with working with shadows and Rembrandt Van Rijn.  For not being 'artistically minded' they gave it a decent try.

On the science front, we transplanted pea seedlings.

 I let the kids decorate their own clay pot before hand.
