We made a list of fun things to do on summer break, but now that school is almost here I feel like we're kind of running low on new ideas. So one hot and sunny morning this week, I packed Lo's backpack with pencils a blank sketchbook and didn't tell her where we were going. We drove to the sculpture park downtown in our beautiful city and drew pictures. Still life.
We talked a little bit about shape, texture, depth and perspective. (See my kid sitting under that tree?) ;)
I wanted it to be fun so I just set her loose and let her pick what she wanted to draw.
While Bowie and I strolled up and down the sidewalk.
She looked at this Keith Haring for a long time.
And then decided to draw buildings.
And after she was done, it was really starting to get hot so we stopped for refreshments. It was a surprisingly fun day that I'll remember for a long time, and it didn't cost us a penny. (Well, except for the Starbucks.) I think we will do this again soon.
