The boy's reproduced some of N.C. Wyeths' work for their art this week. They both claimed insufficient tools. I have to agree that colored pencils might not have been enough to reproduce colors.

Hunter chose "Still Life with Onions" because he thought it would be easy. It wasn't, but I think he did a fairly good job.

Dakota chose an illustration that Wyeth did for Robinson Crusoe, which he just finished reading. It was actually a really hard picture to reproduce especially with colored pencils. He did pretty good.

Wow---- what artists!

Those are great!

I know about the "insufficient tools." Once I let Maxim use my good watercolors and brush and it really did make a difference in his approach and care.

BTW, since you are an AO experienced user, do you hand in a portfolio at the end of year? This is my first year and, though I think I know what to include, would love to see pics of someone's.

I am so not an experienced AO user. This is our first year as well, we are truly enjoying it. In MO we don't have to "turn in" a portfolio but I will include their Art notebooks, Science notebooks, Nature Journals, and any other work that they do, in the records that I keep.
