My daughter recently learned about Russia and the history behind the Russian nesting doll tradition. This lesson was combined with folk art painting techniques. She learned two painting techniques: Creating comma brush strokes and the use of a medicine dropper for painting dots. Alyssa utilized these painting techniques with acrylic paint when creating her symmetrical Russian Matryoshka Doll masterpiece.
I am a stay at home mom to my daughter, Alyssa. I taught 2nd grade for three years after earning my Masters Degree in Education. I love teaching! But, I am enjoying every moment I have at home with my daughter. I enjoy seeing her learn new things through exploration and play. I am always on the search for new, fun ways to enhance her learning experience. We are an eclectic homeschool family. Please enjoy browsing this blog.
