My son is bringing home beautiful art work from his preschool. I’m surprised because his interest in crafts has been minimal at best. (and of course all the fun-projects-with-your-kids-sites ALWAYS suggest crafts, which at our home often ends with paper everywhere and no actual art in site. maybe some ingestion of play dough. yum.)
He brings home this picture last week:
Me: Oh E! It’s so beautiful! You must LOVE blue! Do you LOVE blue?
E: Um, it’s North and South America, Mama.
This week E brings home a new picture:
Me: Oh E. It’s beautiful! (I carefully ask) What is it?
E: It’s GREEN, Mama. (He may even have rolled his eyes.)
No, I did not take art appreciation in college. And now E knows, too.
