Children enjoyed creating colorful neighborhoods and cities with me at the OKCMOA last weekend for Drop-in Art.
We talked about architecture and our neighborhoods and immediately began to get to work.
Think about what is in your neighborhood: houses, apartment buildings, sky scrapers, dog houses, schools, hospitals, museums, trees, parks, etc.
Cut your buildings from colorful cardstock.
Arrange cut buildings, trees, etc and glue down in three levels.
We use oil pastels to add details to our buildings. Oil pastels can be messy. Don't take too much paper off the pastel at a time and try to keep the back of your hand off the paper to avoid smearing.
So much fun. They are all so different, I love them all!
