Chagall and 5 year olds. . .

 Last week, we took our school, all 45 pupils to a show. There were four musicians playing music whilst showing some very famous paintings by some very famous painters. (All from the last century and all dead, unfortunately). The show was fun and very quirky.  I loved it, the younger ones loved it and the older children said it was naf. They've crossed over to the darkside, as 8 to 10 year olds do. Am hoping to retrieve some of them but fear the dark force maybe to strong.
I was really inspired by Chagall's Blue Circus below. I'm thinking I will get my little ones doing their own Chagall Circus. Hopefully I'll get them started before Christmas. I have already started to tell them a little about Chagall. I'm determined to cram their 5 year old brains with art knowledge. It's wasted on most 10 year olds...



A little Fun and Nonsense xx

Go for it, cram their brains! Even if there's only one of them doing something with it later on, it's worth it ... Love your version of Chagall!
