OK, I'll come clean ( here at least) - the gnome-schoolers did a bunk and ran off to grab some art history in the rain. Yes, in a dodgy part of town and oh so hidden away is quite a treasure to behold by Simon ( Sabato) Rodia.
The kids listened in fascination to the well versed tour guide, asked a ton of questions and were inspired by more art inside the gallery before creating something of their own. Great day out in the storm thanks to Paper and HomeschoolLA! The rain stopped just long enough for us to be outside in the sunshine, snap some shots before it all came pelting down again! Ha!! Happily the hippie boys remembered lots of interesting facts, to spout at the Hairy One upon his hobbling home.
