art study: Rembrandt's Flora

We've studied several of Rembrandt's paintings since the school year began. Last week we took a look at Flora. I explained to the girls that Flora was the goddess of flowers and the spring and then invited them to make their own drawings of Flora.

This is C's version of Flora. She rains down both seeds and rain from the heavens. C then decided to paste one of her origami flowers on the opposing page.

K's flora runs along sprinkling flowers and seeds on the ground. Apollo joins her in the heavens delivering warm spring sunshine.
