Mini Drawing Spark #4

Leave a Comment

Here we are again, it's Mini Drawing Spark #4!

This one is inspired by my favorite daily lunch, salades ;-). We're drawing veggie and fruit!
Wait, not only drawing, we're also taking a little side step to collage.

Go to your fridge for vegetable examples (or fruit of course). Empty fridge? No worries, just look for veggie pics on the web. Look closely at the shapes of your finds.
Cut those shapes out of (colored) paper and glue onto a sheet of heavy paper (I prefer 160 - 200 grams Academic drawing paper). You can make a still life, let the shapes overlap, choose whatever composition you like.

Now draw the vegetables / fruits onto the shapes using a fineliner or ink. It's totally okay if they do not match the paper shapes perfectly. I drew my kiwi and fennel a bit off on purpose, makes it look more dynamic and fun.

Enjoy!

Kunst Klub [Art Club]

Leave a Comment

I think I can say that the Kunst Klub [Art Club] I organised in our little village was a succes! You never know how many kids will join but all days had enough subscriptions, wednesday was even fully booked. All kids were between 4 and 7 so it was - age wise - a good group as well. I got enthousiastic feedback from both parents and kids, which of course is the most important of all!
Overall a great start with this first Kunst Klub.

So what did we do?
On monday we made our own flags/ wall decoration using fruit and veg stamps. The kids sewed, stamped, painted the flags and crafted tassels.


Wednesday was ice cream day. First drawing your fave ice cream, then making a big version out of paper and cardboard.


On friday the theme was 'wood'. The little artists made boats out of scrap wood. I also made them little ship journals which they filled with drawings of creatures and sights seen on their imaginative sea journey.


Because each lesson took 2.5 hours I also prepaired some side activities outdoors like: blowing super bubbles (I eventually used this recipe) and making a sidewalk chalk painting (recipe for the paint here, I used the much more food coloring though, about the double amount).


My personal favorites were making the boats and the big bubbles, so much fun! I'm now aiming for a weekly Kunst Klub and maybe a summer version again next year... I'll keep you posted!
