Sketch Tuesday

Do you all know about Sketch Tuesday? Barb at Harmony Art Mom sets a sketch assignment each week which you can participate in, then the following week there is a slideshow of all the sketches. It’s free, non-competitive, you don’t have to sign up for anything, and parents are welcome to join in as well as kids. Read all about it at Harmony Art Mom: http://harmonyartmom.blogspot.com/p/what-is-sketch-tuesday.html.

This week’s assignment was to sketch something beginning with “S”. These open ended assignments are the ones we love the best.

Gman sketched his sunglasses:

beginning with s - g

Waif went for a selection of sauces:

beginning with s - r

And because I like to join in too, I sketched scissors:

beginning with s - v

Before starting home educating, I hadn’t sketched anything since the age of about 14. One of the best things about home educating is the chance to try new things and learn alongside your children (Harmony Art Mom has a great post that touches on this here). I’m certainly no artist, but I do enjoy sketching alongside the kids and find it quite soothing and meditative. I also think it’s important for the kids to see that learning is a lifelong process and that Mum is willing to have a go at learning new things.

Back to the sketching – Waif so enjoyed sketching the sauce bottles that he decided to invent his own range of sauces, using some made-up vegetables of his own “raters” and “turynas”:

    Lovely idea! Sketching is really fun. We are really into Shoo Rayner at the moment. He does brilliant art tutorials based on his cartoon style work, we discovered him as the illustrator for Michael Morpugo’s Mudpuddle Farm series. His website is really cool, and he has his own ‘Shootube’ channel!

    Sketching is fun and it always helps to have a prompt.

    Talent sure runs in your family, girl! I too loved learning alongside my kids, there was so much I was never taught in public school.

I will reply to comments here on the blog, so please check back if you are looking for a response! I love hearing from you x
