Continuing our arty-wordy theme, we took pastels back to Le Ciel Rouge today. Let the girls play and trampoline and socialise for a while, then chained them to the table to do something meaningful. Zoe got out some books and suggested they use them for inspiration and we all ‘art-ed’ together. I do think making myself draw alongside them is having some effect.
Maddy tried really hard to draw a man punting along in a boat and managed to not get cross when it wasn’t exactly as she wanted. She is trying so hard to persist and learn through trial and error at the moment.
I’m really hoping she’ll come back to this.
And I drew a tree *and* something else. 😆
This was pastels and oil pastels combined. I’m going to nick Zoe’s pic of it as I spoiled the sky after she took one, but in general I really liked combining the two types of pastel.
The Zoe and I had a go at something from Sketch Tuesday to see if we could make something pleasing enough that the kids wouldn’t go mad trying to do it. It was great, so next week, we’ll get them to have a go.
We made a type of squiggle picture using the oil pastel pens.
LOTS of fun, very easy but very satisfying 🙂
