Major homeschool planning is underway, so in the mean time, I thought I’d share some of our art projects from this past school year. We had fun working on them, and most turned out really great. In fact, I didn’t realize how much I enjoy drawing and painting and using different mediums until I started doing it with my children during our school days. But, when I did, I felt relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I am still learning a lot, and have a long way to go, but it’s been fun, and hopefully we all will continue to improve. For art, we used Creating a Masterpiece. And, this summer, the kids are taking some fun art classes from a local high school teacher who has just put together some art days for free. They are having a blast with it. This same art teacher won 1st prize at our Country Fair last year, and I loved what she did. I’m trying to convince her to teach me how she did it! (If you’re reading this….hint! hint! Hahaha!) Below are some of the projects that we did!
This is called The Lighthouse and was done in acrylics.
These were done in pastels. The one on the right is called Baby Blue Bird.
This was done in colored pencil. It’s called Clown Fish. The above pictures were done by me. Below will be my two daughters…oldest (15) to youngest (9).
The 15 year old claims she’s no good at art, but I think she did pretty well. And, she definitely has an artistic knack for painting nails, and doing hair! My 9 year old loves art, but gets frustrated when she doesn’t think her work is turning out well. She stopped working on the clownfish for that reason. However, I think she’s definitely a budding artist, and she’s definitely the crafty one in our house.
What keeps you busy in the summer months?
Have a wonderful and safe 4th of July weekend!
