Art - How to Draw... (and how to surprise your Mom!)

I have been doing lots and lots of planning and preparation for this next year.  One thing I fell short on this past year was utilizing the amazingly wonderful art resources at  Art Projects for Kids and Deep Space Sparkle.

I went through Kathy Barbro's website, Art Projects for Kids and printed out a lot of her lessons on how to draw...
a lighthouse
a bunny
a cat
or another cat
hens and chicks
a cardinal
and so forth.

I was up late, oh so very late (3am!) working on all this (and other things which I'll write about in the next week or so).  Since we have our very good friends coming to house-sit for us, I thought I'd hang some of them on the wall near our craft table since their two daughters are very artistically inclined.

The next morning hubby let me sleep in late -- and I came down to find that the kids had done more than TEN drawings EACH!!!!! Here are a select few...

Along this same vein, I highly recommend the series Draw, Write Now if you haven't heard of them before. I went ahead and ordered two more books to add to our collection for this next year.
