My grandchildren love to be in my studio and I love that they want to be there. But I don't want them to think that the only time they can do art is when they are with me. So when the oldest ones were 3, I gave the 3 oldest some small sketch books. I told them they could do anything they wanted in them. I looked through one of them and can really see progress in their art ability.
The first thing they had to do was print their names in their books.
Then I have them pictures and fabric they could cut up and glue into their books.
Starting with paint.
Pressed flowers from the garden.
Using multiple colours, line, shape and a page spread.
Now people are starting to appear.
And now that they are in school, they're using letters.
I was also pretty impressed with these tree drawings.
Here is a landscape in colour.
I love to see them growing in their creativity and hope as they grow older they never lose that love for paint, pencils, scissors, glue, sparkles, stickers, beads, yarn .........
