Inspired Art

It is so much fun learning through Quinn.  He\’s in preschool and Don and I are learning all sort of things.  Did you know that zephyr means \”a gentle breeze\”?  We knew the word but didn\’t know the definition.  We know now.

We also learned about an interesting artist, Brooklyn born James Rizzi.  In last weeks art class Quinn\’s teacher talked about Rizzi and his work.  After the discussion the kids created their own anthropomorphic building inspired by Rizzi.

This is what Quinn brought home and he said it\’s a building with a face.  It didn\’t make much sense until I read this weeks class newsletter and googled James Rizzi.  Never too old to learn.

(I love that Q used a different color for each letter of his name.)
And some of James Rizzi\’s work.
