I don't do a very good job incorporating art into our school weeks...
But I do appreciate it.
And I still claim to be "craft handicapped" so if I can do a craft, anyone can!
While cleaning out a few cupboards and drawers today, putting Christmas stuff away, I found some of these supplies that I had picked up at the Dollar Tree
Having just learned a new crafting word recently:
"Repurpose"...Love that word...
I found a "new purpose" for my plaques.
I came up with a way to honor the Most Holy Name of Jesus.
There are a few good videos for beginners if you google around.
Princess decided to draw her 1st Communion Patron Saint
and try out some pastels.
She used our favorite
Catholic How-To-Draw book from CHC.
~Saint Kateri Tekakwitha~
That Artist Woman
and her project that
Lacy posted over at Catholic Icing
on Mary, Mother of God.
She makes it look so easy!
*We are really liking these pastels and plan to do a few more things*
I found these adorable Holy Family Templates
over at Deviantmonk.
They also provide the templates for the entire Nativity.
I thought they were so cute!
I traced and used pastel coloring and blending...
Once again, not fancy but fun.
February is dedicated to the Holy Family!
~Hmmm, lots of stuff to do with that one~
Here is our quote to memorize and copy for the week in keeping with
January's [Most Holy Name of Jesus] theme:
"The name of the Lord is a strong fortress; The godly run to Him and are safe."
