A Little Live History

My kids school did a little live history today. They created tableau's of famous paintings from the Renaissance. Here are some pics....

Jacob's class recreated The School of Athen's
(he is Alexander the Great on the left of this pic)

The original painting

Emma's class recreated The Judgement of Solomon

The Original

Joey's class recreated Death of a Virgin

The original

It was a lot of work for many people.....thank goodness for those creative types. There were 13 Tableau's in all! It does bring history to life, though.
