Wee Da Vinci - on the scene

Not to be outdone by his sister who started creating Monsters around this age - our little man just figured out his circles and quickly moved onto faces all on his own. We looked over and he was creating these one after another and wiping the magna doodle clean.

I like to keep the children’s names separate from the online world - so I will refer to our little man as Wee Da Vinci for blog purposes. I will also keep a blog with just his artwork, this is a great way to save all those special drawings and I think he would like his own spot for that - weedavinci.blogspot.ca


Mother & Baby - Drawing Series

This is a series we started tonight. Wee Picasso picks if she is doing the Mother or Baby - then we use the same page to create the image. We really enjoyed making these and I think there will be more in this series. Wee Picasso feels they should be in a gallery show.


Grade One - Egyptian Cats

These are some pictures from teaching art with Wee Picasso’s grade one class. They are a fantastic group of children and it is a great way to get to know her classmates.

I showed them images of Egyptian art, showed them how much they loved their cats and would included them in their artwork. We talked about hieroglyphics as well - and gave each child a guide to use to write their name in hieroglyphics.

I encourage you to get involved with your child’s school. Go to the Home & School meeting, talk to their teacher, help out at lunchtime or in the library. The children will get to know you, you will get to know the staff. The benefits are huge.

I taught them how to draw a cat then went around and helped them with their hieroglyphics.

Then they used oil pastels to colour their artwork. We did a wash of blue tempura paint. The kids thought is was great.

Class Cats

Then for the final touches they decorated with buttons.

Looking forward to our next project. Any ideas for spring please share them!
