This summer my son and I took a look in our local Museum of Natural History. They were having a show about The Magna Carta, and since this was signed the heart of the Renaissance era, I knew there would also be awesome art to look at!
Cue the Medieval Trumpets!
We saw beautiful stained glass windows…
My son was able to do a rubbing with wax.
Fun weaponry, which brought up an interesting conversation about a SpongeBob episode.
Different ways that the medieval artists would make their paint pigments.
and of course a medieval privvy (can you figure out what this is?)
Then we checked out the dinosaurs.
And the awesome Egyptian art exhibition.
And finally, art of the Native Americans (from all the Americas).
