Best of 2015 - Project: Around the World


Earlier this week, I counted down the top-viewed posts of 2015. Now, I'd like to share my favorite posts of 2015. They're all part of a fun project my girls and I started at the very beginning of the year, Project: Around the World. We thought it would be fun (and challenging) to make our way around the world and to do an art project inspired by each country. We decided to go alphabetically so it would be easy to keep track of the countries we've done and the ones still to go. It's been an incredibly rewarding project so far. The things we have learned have been amazing!

It is hard for me to pick a favorite project from this series. I've loved everything we have done so far. So, I went to see what was the most popular post. It was our Colorful Building Paper Collages from Argentina (pictured above). We used the colorful buildings in the neighborhood of La Boca in Buenos Aires for our inspiration. You can read all the details at this link. 



What else have we done?

We were inspired by the famous Blue Mosque in Mazar-e Sharif, Afghanistan and created watercolor tiles. (Top left)

We created our own version of prehistoric rock paintings inspired by Tassili n'Ajjer in Algeria. (Top right)

We learned about the Aboriginal culture in Australia and made paintings in the style of Aboriginal dot painting. (Bottom left)

We listened to the music of Mozart and painted on top of sheet music while we explored Austria. (Bottom right)

The projects have been varied, creative, and fun. You can find the full list of our projects from Project: Around the World here.

Now you know my favorite project from 2015, why don't you check out some of the other favorite posts from my fellow bloggers below.
