Painting in Summer

Our creativity was sparked by Kandinsky‘s circles. I guided the kids to make different sizes of circles and to use the color wheel to paint them. We also copied a painting of a skyline which was really nice because I got to witness how the kids did their best to make the skyline of buildings and houses.

The kids also created letter decors for their moms for Mothers’ Day. It was quite messy but extremely fun as I allowed them to decorate the letters of their own design.

We also tried our best to copy Ton Shulten‘s landscapes. We began with creating two curved horizontal lines. Then I asked them to draw vertical lines across them unequally. Then I asked them to draw vertical lines to create the houses, small squares for doors and windows and trees.

We decided to color the houses and the surrounding areas using warm colors and then the trees and the sky using cool colors. We used poster color paints. It took longer than expected but the results are awesome! We also tried using salt and watercolor but it kinda failed. Oh well. We’ll do our best next time.

We also did some pastel flowers.

Overall, I was glad I did the arts and crafts class. I loved the time I spent with the kids and it totally brought out my daughter’s creative side. I have to say, this was a summer well spent with my Heaven.
