Art- Manuscripts

This week we were learning in our History course about the Middle ages and the move into the Renaissance. The kids learned that the light of learning was dim but Monks were sitting by lamp light copying books to help preserve them. We also learned that Muslims were doing the same on the Arabian Peninsula.

So we look at some of this writing and we looked at how the monks would decorate their books especially the Bible. What we did was to draw the first letter of our names and then add some things to it that said something about us.







This is Sweet Peas (5) letter C. She drew herself in the middle and added a rainbow over the top. She also asked me to add some hearts around her frame. She is all Girl that is for sure.




Spirit (8) made his letter B. He has snow on his for when he was born .( January) Of course it would not be complete without a minecraft guy. Spirit also mentioned he likes spring so he added some spring flowers.





To get the kids to take their time with their lessons I found that if I make one too they work harder. So I made this one. I was born in November and my favorite season is fall. I like to paint and write so both those are shown. Down the side I wrote the first letter of all of my kids names, because they are a part of me. My favorite color is brown so my initial is colored brown .
