Kimbell Art Museum: Home School Class

Today we enjoyed a really nice visit to Ft. Worth's Kimbell Art Museum. This was our first visit to the Kimbell. They had a program for home educators and children. Their newest exhibit, Picturing the Bible, the earliest Christian Art. Frankie, and older children created their own fresco. Caleb and Abigail created their own coins and gold inlaid glass work. After the art project the docent took us on a tour of the new exhibit. There was artwork from the catacombs, sarcophagus's of early Christians, even several pieces on loan from the Vatican. Sister Wendy, from the PBS program was visiting from England, and filming during our visit.
