It’s a Family Affair

There’s something quite lovely about the times when all the family sit down together to draw together. Would it be too cheesy to say that drawing together draws us together?

This week we all tackled the Sketch Tuesday assignment “Something Beginning with N”.

Daddy and Gman drew a plate of nuts:

beginning with n - m
beginning with n - g

And Waif and I went for necklaces:

beginning with n - r
beginning with n

I recommend popping over the Harmony Art Mom’s blog to see the slideshow of entries from other homeschooled kids and some parents!

    I love this! The whole family drawing together! A while ago, I out a huge sheet of Kraft paper on our wall and invited the whole family and friends who came to visit, to draw, doodle, etc. It was really fun!
