Important History Figures Art
Do you have history class in school? How cool it is, then, to instruct the children to make a painting of a well-known figure from history.
At an elementary school in Ede, I was able to admire a great history art gallery (the hallway on the upper floor). The paintings were all super cool and I was allowed to photograph them to show them to everyone. It's a nice idea to combine creativity and history!
