Indian Miniatures

We learned that miniatures were a popular art form in India between the 10th and 12th Century, so when I found these tiny canvases (and easels!) at Hobby Lobby, I knew we had to try painting our own miniature paintings. The picture above is supposed to depict Balarama, our favorite Indian elephant. (One of our favorite books for this unit was Balarama, a Royal Elephant, and you should hear Daisy squeal "Baya-yama!" whenever she sees an elephant now. It's so cute.)
Seb and Abe both painted peacocks

What a fun art project!
