Sunday Sketches.....Illustration 101 with munchkin....







Hi Everyone....

I am starting a new thing each week with our son called ....Illustration 101 ...a little fun class I look forward to and he loves....so this is what we worked on today....it is super fun to do with children so if you have some people in your lives that want to draw this is a perfect exercise ....

it is pretty simple....Cole brings home books from the library that he is inspired by. We then look at the cover art and break it down into manageable pieces.....I am teaching him not to look at the big picture but to look at bits and pieces of the picture and see what they look similar to....for example in the book we used this week....the dog's eye section looks almost like the letter W with curly parts instead of sharp v parts....etc....

He did an amazing job and was super excited about his finished piece...he did it all by himself and I have to say that I think his is way better than  mine for our lesson.....

Super fun and a sweet share for Sunday Sketches.....

Happy Sunday Everyone and Happy Creating....and thank you for popping in!!!

how wonderful that you are doing art with Cole. I love how you broke down this lesson for him. Good for me to hear. I always make up my art, so i have virtually no skill for looking at something and portraying it on paper.

Cole, your art is awesome!

He has definitely inherited your artistic ability! What a fun way to get kids interested and inspired by art!
