Amazing Art

As a homeschooling Mom, there are moments. Yes, there are those moments(and we all know what those moments are, don't we? LOL), but there are also moments when you just want to do something so not on the agenda that it drives you nuts until you exit, stage left, to something totally new and different. The really cool thing about homeschooling is that we can. So we exited to a website devoted to artistic endeavors using murals.

The boys and I were amazed. Each tile of the mural is a different picture, but when all put together, you have a cohesive picture that tells a story. Included on this website was a picture of Noah's Ark made up of species of animals that are either extinct or endangered. There is also a precious picture of children and several others. And there are two works in progress that I could find. One is updated weekly. You should check it out here

Meanwhile, here is one that was particularly wonderful. The horse's eye amazed us. On the mural mosaic website you can click on each tile to see it up close. You will be amazed. I encourage you to check out this one, called "Trust" here on the website so you can click to see each tile, especially the horse's eye.
