American History~ {Benjamin West}

We have been reading Benjamin West and His Cat Grimilkin with our Beautiful Feet American History curriculum~ 
He is known as the father of American painting.
Today as we were reading he painted a landscape and we pulled out our watercolors~

One of his first mediums was charcoal and since Amelia is an Art major, she gave the girls an art lesson~
 Between charcoal and chalk pastels~
They were a mess!
A mess of creative happiness.
Thanks Amelia for sharing your gift with us!!!
