We went to the MOMA and I got to see my favorite Andy Warhol paintings.




We felt inspired to do more Andy Warhol painting at home. Here's my Warhol superman...



It's based on this painting by Warhol



And here's Jojo and my Warhol bananas!


We also saw Monet's water lillies at the MOMA and did some sketching!

Ancient India Studies

We are learning about Ancient India and the Hindu Gods. Jojo and me made Ganeshes. Guess which is mine? They will go on the shelf with our models of the Greek Gods.

We read the story of Ramayana. Then we saw this movie called Sita Sings the Blues. Jojo made a clay Sita (but sometimes her arms fall off!)

Artists in August

We set up an artist's den in our house.
We've been learning about Joan Miro and painting his pictures. This is my Miro painting.

We've also looked at paintings by Claude Monet. This is my haystack!

This is Jojo's Monet painting of Big Ben.

...and sometimes we paint outside like Monet loved to!

We went to the Met too and saw a real Miro!

Rume and I also did some sketches...

I'm going to eat you....

...except I have no front teeth!

More Catskills Adventures!

We went to a waterfall. It was so much fun it made me dance.
