Adam has finished his first term of online classes. He passed both English and Art. Yay! Now it’s on to digital photography and U.S. history…
For his final art project he had to choose an artist the class had studied and complete an art project in that artist’s style. He chose Van Gogh. He found a photograph on the internet of a tree in a wheat field. He laid on thick coats of paint. Here is his project. (It’s actually quite a bit brighter than you can see here.)
Not to be outdone, Zachary completed an art project on his own initiative while I was busy evaluating applications for an academic program on deadline. (Yes, Zachary was supposed to be doing English or Math, but at least he wasn’t studying skateboarding.) He decided to copy Adam’s painting. After a quick lesson in how imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Adam decided he really likes Zachary’s painting, has decided it’s fall to his summer, and wants to paint another pair together.
Adam is now taking photography. I expect the Battle of the Images to continue. I am up for it!
