(Updated at the end.)
Ukrainian public schools are going to broadcast on TV. Our music school teachers have been working out their own versions of distance learning. Art school is private, so they can do what they want, and they're staying in touch, too. One of the teachers for the older classes has been doing a challenge where she sends a theme to draw each day. The kids send their pictures to her, and she posts them on Facebook each evening. They're keeping track of who gets the most likes. (Do you want to help us? Look for the name Ася.) At the end of quarantine there will be prizes.
Yesterday Bogdan's drawing teacher started something for the younger kids, too. She sent a video of herself drawing a beetle and asked them to join her. The little kids in our house did it all together and loved it. They couldn't wait for the next video to come out. Today was butterflies. Again, you can vote for the pictures with Facebook likes: Богдан, Лютфие, Нуруддин, and Уммухан with Ася are the best, of course. I didn't think the teacher would include the other kids, because they aren't in her classes, but she did, and they're very excited when anyone votes for them. Watch for their butterflies soon, too.
Bogdan usually draws a lot by himself, but I had noticed that he wasn't lately. Yesterday got him going again, and now he can't stop. After the beetle he made a whole set of other beetle drawings on his own. He has been missing art classes, but I think this is going to help him.
