THIS WEEK'S DRAWING
Keep drawing and like in art class, we always say to "draw from life". Keep practicing by drawing things you see everyday, like a table lamp, a tree, your dog sitting, or your family member. It's so important to practice. This gives us a visual dictionary that allows to freely draw whatever we want to draw. When we know how to draw things, people, landscapes, then we can add our imagination and create fun and exciting details to it. Have fun drawing and draw everyday!
Join Ms. Annie as she draws numbers and makes animals out of them. Fun draw for the little ones and big kids! Have Fun!
This week's drawing is for Mother's Day. This is Mama Bear and Baby Bear. Have fun drawing this for your mom. Make sure you greet them and give them a big hug this Mother's Day!
Today's art is inspired by Mermay! Narwhals are medium sized, pale-colored whales found in the Arctic coastal waters. They called the unicorns of the sea. Why unicorn? As you can see, they have a horn right below their eyes. These horns you see are tusks. Narwhals have two teeth; and in males, it grows right through their upper lip.
Mermaids are mythological water creatures that are half fish and half human. They appear in folklore and popular culture. Stories about mermaids can be traced back in Assyria c. 1000 BC. You will discover many fascinating stories about mermaids. Mermaids have been popularized by author, Hans Christian Anderson, and Disney's, The Little Mermaid, Ariel. Today, let's draw a narwhal and mermaid. Have fun!
Since this week's theme is reptiles, how about we draw one of the famous reptiles we know, the dinosaur? But this dinosaur, instead of being a terrible terror, let's make him a gentle giant. In this video, you will learn some building blocks of drawing a dinosaur. Remember how important shapes are in putting a drawing together. Don't see it as I have to draw a dinosaur, see it as different shapes connected to make a dinosaur. As always, we start our art class with our warm up. Spend 2-5 minutes with our warm up circles and 8's. Have fun and always remember to practice. The first try might not be great, but keep at it. Like in art class, we try to draw 3-5 times and when you look at your drawing it looks so much better than the first. When you draw 10 or more times, it's better than the first one! Awesome, blossom! Draw, draw, draw! Have fun!!!
