Grandma Moses


According to Special Days in September ( https://stilllearningsomethingnew.com/2016/08/23/special-days-in-september-2016/ ), September 7, 1860 is the birth date of Grandma Moses.  A couple of Septembers ago we learned about her and enjoyed her art.  This year we have decided to further that study.  Below are the online resources we’ll be using as we learn about this fascinating and talented lady and practice some pre-painting drawing.
