Art at School

I have to say, I am really thrilled with the school that Chris and Joe attend, and the emphasis that is placed on learning about all forms of art. I think it's equally important to have creative thinking developed as well as the quantitative and analytical side of the brain. Joey really loves to do crafty projects. His teachers are really skilled and artistic, and he's bringing something awesome home from school almost daily. Chris is learning about fine art and the masters of art in history. They are learning to paint like Monet and Renoir, and in doing so they are developing an inherent appreciation for it. I'm thinking a trip to the Met is on deck for our family really soon. This way, they can see the works of the artists they are learning about in school, and also check out a painting or two by their Uncle George while we're there.
