For a class later in the afternoon we created nature inspired pen and ink drawings with watercolors. I encouraged everyone to really draw what they see and not what they think they see. No pencils. No erasers. They did great! Several people commented on how relaxing they thought it was.
We used: Watercolor paper Watercolors permanent pens nature objects
Wife, Mom, Artist and Education Coordinator at City Arts Center. I believe art is a child's first written language. They have a creative spirit and imagination others tend to lose as they grow up. Many famous artists have tried to duplicate the way children paint and draw knowing that children have a true artistic bravery, unafraid and unabashed. I have the wonderful opportunity to share art with children and watch this process unfold. It truly is magical.
