Byzantine Art

We've really loved our Layers of Learning curriculum. The past two weeks we have done some map work on the Byzantine Empire as well as learned about Turkey and it's capital Istanbul (formerly known as Constantinople), read Anna of Byzantium, and definitely had some fun doing some hands on art.

We learned about holy halos in art, which are just circles surrounding the subject in paintings. Often this was painted on priests or other religious leaders. We did some chalk art drawings of our own.

We also learned about mosaic art. The girls had a lot of fun breaking up some old plates and doing this project.
