Weekly Art class With the Kids

We love to learn about art and then create. We never know what the kids will come up with after we have learned about the artist's life and their creations.

Here is the time we studied Dali.

We learned about Egyptian Art.

The kids had fun with clay.

Grandma Moses! This was very interesting. She painted very flat and simple yet way more complex then you would think. We found this out as we tried to make our own landscapes.

This is Grandpa Tom's backyard with the row of grapevines down at the bottom of the hill. Painted by child #2.

And here is the delicious Apple Pie (homemade preserved filling) that number 4 child helped me make. We forgot to take a picture when it was cooked. It was delicious!

These are called Tuna Twirls. The recipe is a favorite old time college casserole. The kids like to make it and actually eat it because by the time it is made they are so hungry they would eat anything.

Tuna Cheese Twirls
3 Tab. Chopped onion (can used dried)
1 teaspoon Salt (I leave this out)
1 1/2 cup milk (this was too much)
1 can tuna drained
1 Cup peas or other veggie
1 Tab. Butter melted
6 Tab Flour
2 Cans chicken or mushroom condensed soup

Saute the onions. Combine sauce ingredients and pour into 9X13 casserole pan. Mix Biscuits. Roll dough 1/4 " thick. Sprinkle wtih 1/2 C Cheese. Roll up like a jelly roll. Cut in to 1/2 " slices. Place over sauce in pan. Bake 350 F for 30 min. or until browned.

2 C. Flour (add a bit more when rolling out.)
1/2 Tsp. salt
1/4 C. Butter
3/4 C. Milk or less
3 tsp. Baking Powder

Fun stuff! Thanks for the pictures.
I'd like to know about the tuna twirls. :)

Those tuna twirls are yummy. The biscuits are the best. I think some tweaking needs to take place with the tuna mushroom pea contraption below...maybe some rice and celery?

I totally agree that the contraption sauce stuff needs a bit of tweaking. I think rice is a good idea or noodles.
