Making old fashioned clothes pin dolls is a delightful one on one project in which little artist and grown up work together. Little artists choose clothes, hair, and identities for the dolls, grown ups handle the hot gluing, then artists play with their new collaborative creations.
Listen to music and draw like you are dancing! In this mixed media project, little artists close their eyes and draw like their hand is dancing across the page. Adding watercolor on top of the dancing lines creates a colorful finished composition.
My son Roger started calling these little creations “Monster Eyes” and the name stuck. In this sculpture project, little artists play with model magic and markers and then add eyes to their “monsters.”
This painted cardboard assemblage (3D collage), inspired by the work of Louise Nevelson, can be completed by one individual artist working over time, or by a classroom or play group working together.
