Week 8: Hot Mamas in Japanese Art



"Is that sort of like a hot mama, but in Japan?" asks Miss M thoughtfully.

While doing our Japanese picture studies this week, the art book pointed out how the artists of the "Floating World" genre painted the idealized feminine Japanese form of the period -- tall, graceful and demure, but TOUGH. See the "Strong Woman" picture. Miss M remembered the "Se*y Mama" t-shirt one of the characters wore in the movie "R.V." and thought a similar title would be perfect for this week's notebook page. Hmmm. I think she's got the idea. : ) Sometimes, when you are homeschooling tweens, you just have to go with it and remember not to take anything too seriously!

In keeping with my personal commitment to SHORTEN my Weekly Report this week, I'll leave our Week in Review mostly to the slide show.



Hot Mamas of Japanese Art notebook page - what no Classical educator should leave out of their curriculum plan!





So, for Week 9, we look forward to either the final week of our Japan study, or maybe moving on to the topic of Korea. We'll see.

Thanks for stopping by!

Kids are so funny!

Great notebook page. Your DD has a good eye for design.

I love Jolee's, too, but had never thought of them for notebooking. What a good idea.
