Sadie’s Artistry

02 Oct

Sadie got the book The Usborne Art Treasury from the library that depicts famous pieces of art and demonstrates ways that children can recreate similar pieces. We looked at Van Gogh’s Starry Night…

…then Sadie worked on her own swirly picture. The swirls were drawn in pencil first and then acrylic paints mixed with glue were painted on and a plastic fork used to drag through the paints to make swirls.

Using the same book, Sadie creates a hanging mobile much like Eleven Polychrome:

And, in Sadie’s free-flow form, lately she’s very into having her body traced and then creating a person on paper. 

There is always art being created around here.

    Hey Sadie! Where are you getting the big rolls of paper? Lochlann wants to know! Thanks! Susan

    Fun art! We have been getting into art a lot more here. We were even thinking about getting a book like that! Too fun!
