Art and needle felting

We painted today. When we paint for lessons, we use just the three primary colors and enjoy learning how variations of mixing them create many other colors.

Below is my 2nd grader’s painting and above is my example painting. I also paint it a second time at the same time as him during the lesson.

My kindergartener painted as well.

My 8th grader did a chalk drawing on black construction paper for his artwork this week. I attempted to make it smudge-proof by spritzing some hair spray on it, but it left some wet spots. I guess that only works with aerosol hair spray?

Last night, I got my box of roving out to make a little doll for our kindergarten homeschool stories.

I followed the directions in the back of this lovely book.

I’m still not pleased with his face, and am going to fiddle with it a bit. But, he’s already well-loved. His name is Super Sam, the main character in the kindergarten stories I tell each week.
