Yes, I know it’s Wednesday… I have been watching Harmony Art Mom’s Sketch Tuesday program for a while now. I kept telling the kids we were going to start participating, but we never did. Until recently.
The idea is that each week Barb will post a simple idea for people to sketch. She collects the sketches and puts together a slideshow for everyone. It’s a great idea and a lot of fun. We dedicated a couple of sketch pads to Sketch Tuesday and began sketching. We’ve participated twice now and both Diva and LegoFan have enjoyed seeing their work in the slideshows.
The first time the topic was ‘something associated with the word athlete.’ Here’s what they did:
Diva drew four girls playing tennis.
LegoFan sketched Gold’s Gym.
This most recent week, we were to sketch ‘something that bends.’
LegoFan got creative and chose several things that bend.
Diva chose to sketch an arm.
Here’s a link to this week’s slide show. Check it out and join us – adults are welcome to sketch along with their children. Perhaps this summer I will pick up a sketch pad of my own and try a few.
