The Chic Assignment Check-In | June 2020 | Mozart & Mary Cassatt

I hope you had a wonderful Father's Day weekend. We had a lovely day with a nice BBQ and swim and time with family...

Welcome to The Chic Assignment Check-in for June. We are going to discover lesser-known aspects about both Mozart's and Mary Cassatt's life.

⚜️ Chic Assignment No. 1 W.A.Mozart Horn Concerto Nr.3 KV.447 in E flat major I.Allegro
Mozart's famous horn concerto really brought peace to my month. How did you enjoy listening to it? Today, I read to you from this excellent article on Mental Floss with 13 facts on Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's short, and fascinating life.

Here is a performance by by Radek Baborák

⚜️ Chic Assignment no. 2 Enjoy the art of Mary Cassatt

Today, we learn of Mary Cassatt's inspiring biography and how she became a world-renowned artist despite her family's disapproval of her chosen path.

Young Mother Sewing, 1900 by Mary Cassatt

Which Mary Cassatt painting is your favorite?

⚜️ Chic Assignment no. 3 Begin to use one elegant thing you own, but hardly ever use. This month, I enjoyed using my lemon loaf pan and I plan to use my brooch more.

⚜️ Chic Assignment no. 4 Spend meaningful time outdoors When we do go outside we can be preoccupied with our thoughts or our smartphones. Let's try to spend some meaningful time outdoors this month, if you are able to go outside.

I finally finished Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. What an excellent biography. I highly recommend it. I have moved on to the audio version of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

Favorite Mary Cassatt painting has always been Children Playing on the Beach because my friend had a copy of it hanging in her daughters' room when they were children. All her paintings are lovely.

I missed this months chic assignment, but I am determined to participate before the month is over! Oh, how I’ve missed being able to focus on these wonderful things (art, music, reading). Jennifer- I am a huge fan! My family has decided to start homeschooling this fall..I know in your last homeschooling recap video you mentioned the Charlotte mason method. I am intrigued by that, but was also curious about what you supplement cm with in your own homeschooling? I’ve started to research Abeka for math, but I am still not sure what to utilize. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Love your books and videos on chic and elegant living!
