I do not teach art to my children. As I said in my guest post on Esther’s blog, the year I decided to teach art we had a grand total of three lessons. However, my boys are very creative and some have made some pretty impressive items. This train model is the latest project. Mr. Diligence had the idea, and did the painting. He and Mr. Intellectual made the models. Mr. Inventor drilled holes.
The garden—raised beds. He filled them with glue, then added bits of macrocarpa needles.
A man made out of copper wire, in a tree.
Another man, at the gate.
The train station.
The fences and telegraph wires were made of copper wire threaded through holes drilled in the posts. The posts were glued into holes drilled in the board.
Here are some more projects Mr. Diligence showed me when we talked about their creations. He made this man by gluing rocks together.
He built this house a couple of years ago.
He carved this boat.
Mr. Diligence also made this windmill.
Mr. Inventor and Mr. Diligence worked together to build this truck. They use it to store treasures.
