Joyce Raimondo gives a brief bio on the artist and then several art projects to try in the style of that artist. I want to try each and everyone of these art projects. The books are very well laid out and have an easy to read and understand style. I HIGHLY recommend them!
But, let's get to the point here! Peelu and Lukey got to try one of the activities in the Book, a la Pissarro. I cut some Dollar Store sponges into "architectural shapes", (really just squares, rectangles and triangles), let the kids pick the colors they wanted to use....and away they went with their sponge painted city skyline.
They had such a great time. And pretty much, every day they ask me to "paint with the sponges again". I LOVE happy hands!
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
