I have a real affinity for Christmas stories, and for stories in general, and books, but we won't go there! One hot Arizona summer day, I picked up an annual Christmas publication at a thrift store called Christmas: The Annual of Christmas Literature and Art (Volume 61). It is a collection of stories, art, poems, and non-fiction, much like another one of my favorite publications, Ideals, that has gone out of print.
You have probably never heard of Mary Ann Robertson, but she painted...one of which is "White Christmas" that you see here. You know this American folk artist better by the name of Grandma Moses.
Encourage your little artists to use the whole paper and draw a winter scene in the same style as Grandma Moses!
Where will you find me when I am not teaching?
For your reading pleasure!
