The ballerinas in my house are going to LOVE today's entry. And I am such a sucker for Degas :)
Have you ever read any of the Katie books by James Mayhew? The main character, Katie, goes to the museum with her Grandma and ends up having various adventures within the paintings. I love them.In Katie Meets the Impressionists, Katie asks the girl in Renoir's The First Outing about her bouquet. After several on- and behind-stage adventures she gets lost in the theater. She finds her way back out of the painting world and back to the museum when she runs into some of Degas' ballerinas warming up and sees the frame she needs. I think the Katie books can be credited with my current interest in art literacy. They're wonderful introductions.
