Good Morning!

...And what a glorious morning it is! Thanks so much for sharing pictures of your precious children and their amazing artwork with me! I miss them so much!

 

This week's lesson is on BUTTERFLIES and symmetry...I love spring art lessons because we focus on so many lovely creations of God.

 

You will notice I have sent 7 photos of butterflies for the children to observe as they draw their own butterfly. The photos are titled, simply~ " Butterfly". The lesson is titled, "Butterfly lesson". They are the video and photos "modified on April 27" located in the folder. As always, use what you have on hand. This lesson can be done with crayons, colored pencils, markers, or paint.
