Renaissance ~ Rebirth
What a wonderful awakening in our home. Our 13 year old Brogan is coming into her own. The changes physically, mentally and emotionally are exciting and new. The Renaissance has been Brogans 7Th year learning block recently . The meaning in French "rebirth". So many wonderful personalities have been read about. I absolutely love gentle Waldorf learning. The 13 year old's new awareness runs completely parallel with the development of the European consciousness in the Renaissance. Our Live Education curriculum has worked so well for our children. Every inch of this beautiful pure inspired Waldorf curriculum has been a blessing.
Here I have Brogan painting Raphael's Sistine Madonna the Divine mother. It is one of the most celebrated of all paintings. She passionately moved her brush and involved her fingers to create this. Aaron is studying the Norse Myths. He chose to paint a viking ship on calm seas. I was intrigued by his interest and amazed at his color choice for the seas. My little Olivia is learning about nature. She is blossoming. She chose to paint the night skies. She chose to place herself looking up at the beautiful big moon. I just love how this turned out. To me this looks like the bigger picture we all somehow seem to miss sometimes. I think my Little artists have amazing talent here.
A Happy day to you all~
