Beary Busy Art Explorers - From Holland to Russia, Japan & England :)

Hi! or as we say in...

Dutch: Hallo! 
Russian:Здравствуйте Zdravstvuyte! (zdrah-stvooy-tee)
Japanese: こんにちは Kon'nichiwa!

It's been a busy few weeks, and our Art Exlporers have plenty to show for their artistic efforts!

We explored tulip fields in Holland...

 

Had fun with Matryoshka dolls of Russia...

 

And appreciated serene settings in Japan...

 
 

 

As we just began our paintings of London, we discussed a custom that many countries, including Russia, Japan and England share. Can you guess what it is? If you guessed time for tea, you are correct - yessiree!!

We celebrated this cultural fact with a wonderful tea party of our own - berry flavored tea in tiny tea cups, along with tea biscuits of course, were enjoyed by all.

Next week we will conclude our terrific travel series with a well deserved surprise.

Until then, enjoy some more tea time with family and friends!

Beary best,
Leah Chamish
