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.

Jan van Eyck

Triptych Panel
In the 1400's Jan van Eyck was the most famous painter in northern Europe.
He is said to be the inventor of oil paints.

He painted many portraits, religious scenes and self portraits.

One of his most famous works is the Ghent Altarpiece,
an amazingly detailed and intricate triptych on a wooden screen.
We used recycled cereal boxes to make our triptych's
