Vikings and Air-dry clay...

Today Nora took the kids at our house for art/history class...(pics by Sean)...we had studied how the Vikings learned from the Christians to make well ,headstones for want of a better work , and the girls used air-dry clay to make their own stones and to decorate them using ordinary kitchen untensils , (no sharpies as Daisy was involved) , so they drew patterns and runes, etc , when the clay "stones" dry they will use acrylics to paint in the details , pictures to come... then the girls made "shields" for the viking ship we are decorating and using as well as the written work , to display their art etc for this project...even Daisy , again had to get in on it , and why not ? Never too early :0)

So a big well done girls ,and a big thankyou to Nora for taking the class for me...and to Sean for the pics and un-ending supply of tea !
