Cinco and Hatley

I got to welcome 2 new young artists to the studio this week: Cinco and Hatley:) They are cousins. I had everything ready for the young artists. We started with a huge piece of paper and I reviewed the 5 basic shapes. The young artists drew, with my help, the 5 shapes in oil pastel. Hatley and Cinco chose their colors for the different shapes. We reviewed the colors as they worked. After drawing all the shapes and saying the proper names for the shapes several times, I broke out the glitter watercolors! They were so excited to paint. I discussed the brushes the artists used – naming the handle and the bristles. We felt several brush bristles! The artists painted over the oil pastel shapes. The pastels resist the watercolor. As the artists worked I discussed proper brushstrokes. Mmmmm – we’ll get there:) When Cinco and Hatley were done – they had masterpieces!!! Next week we will review shapes and then start their first project – Jazzy Jungle Cat. I love introducing young ones to art. What a joy:)
