Middle Eastern Inspiration

School’s out and sum­mer has begun! I’ve just returned from two amaz­ing weeks in the Mid­dle East, vis­it­ing fam­ily in Jor­dan and explor­ing the mar­vels of this rich cul­ture! The carved city of Petra, ancient Roman ruins and spec­tac­u­lar desert land­scapes were just a few of the many won­ders I dis­cov­ered there. In this land of sand and rock, charm­ing mosaics (like the one pic­tured above) are a pop­u­lar art form. Stay tuned (as I recover from my jet lag!) for new lessons with a mul­ti­cul­tural theme!
