We are a creative homeschooling family of 3. I have homeschooled my 2 boys from the start and we do lots of unit studies and get out into our beautiful part of the world as often as we can.
As the boys are getting older and we are getting busier I find I am posting less about our journey but will continue to update occasionally.

Lorenzo Ghiberti 1378- 1455

Ghiberti was a famous sculptor, painter, and a goldsmith. He was famous for the two sets of Bronze Doors.

Lorenzo entered a competition in 1401 in Florence in Italy to select an artist to decorate the doors of the beautiful city church.He was the winner with his calm elegant people in flowing robes. He worked all his life on the doors with many artists working under him.

We created our Florentine reliefs using glued on found objects, cereal box cardboard, alfoil and black ink.
