sail into seascapes

mercyGirl, prayerGirl and I attended a family workshop
at the national gallery of art for the first time.
i thought the stories in art programs for ages 4 – 7 were great,
but this family workshop for children ages 8 – 11 (and their parents)
was an amazing experience.

in sail into seascapes, we explored 17th–century Dutch seascapes,
learned about the symbolism behind different weather conditions,
and afterward the girls created monotypes.
