At the beginning of the school year, I really had hoped to include more art projects and creativity into our days. Sadly, we've not done as much as I planned. With renewed vision and a blog full of easy ideas, we've hit the ground running. Now each day the boys are requesting to "do art" first. I purchased a few basic, but quality art supplies (ahem...not the super cheap ones I always stock up on in the fall...) - watercolor paper, oil pastels, watercolor paints, colored pencils, and drawing paper. Below is one of the projects the boys loved. We looked up the artist (Wayne Thiebaud)and found several of his works to "copy" as well. I am pulling most of our projects from this great blog.
