I have previously mentioned that we’re going to step up the art activities this year. One of my plans is to do a regular directed drawing activity.
Our first step was to turn our sketchbook into a work of art itself! Making the squares was great cutting practice. Then Ryan glued them all over the cover, and I added a layer of Modge Podge. Ella enjoyed gluing squares to her own paper too.
After reading about how Gabby, at The Work of Childhood starts her school year with a self-portrait, we had to do the same! Ryan draws himself all the time, but this time we spent a lot of time looking in the mirror while drawing.
Our next drawing is going to be of our family!
