Last week we kicked off the partnership with the O’Neal School and two schools in Tanzania, Middle and Upper Schools.  This week, we began with the art classes.  I did a demo of painting a scene of Africa in oils.  All the children had a go at adding stokes to the painting as it was the first time for them to work with oil paint.  We ended up with a painting done by all!!  Then the children each did a painting of their own in tempera paint of the same scene. It is our plan to have the children communicate through the various subjects they are all studying in their schools, beginning with the art classes.  When I have downloaded more photos, will add them to the blog.  Am on my way out the door now to set up an art show at the Timmel House which will be Saturday.  Check my website, or facebook to get the details.
