I have mentioned before that we participate in Sketch Tuesday over on Barb's Harmony Art Mom blog. Each Tuesday, Barb sets an assignment of something to sketch, due in the following Monday. These vary wildy and we always look forward to finding out what the next assignment is going to be. We also look forward to the slideshow of the previous week's entries and enjoy seeing what ideas others have come up with for the assignment. What I like about Sketch Tuesday is that it is participation without competition, so there's that feeling of being part of a group of people doing the same thing, without the boys feeling that they are in competition with others. I also love that Barb allows parents to take part as well so I get to sit down and sketch with the boys every week too :-). I never did much art as a youngster so now I'm making up for lost time. It just goes to show that home education is a journey for the whole family, not just the children!
Anyway, enough talk, here are some of the boys' favourite sketches from the past five months we have been taking part:
Here are some of Gman's:
"Sketch Something with Antenna"
"Sketch something you use to treat a cold"
"Sketch something you see on a boat"
"Sketch something you make with water"
And some of Waif's:
"Sketch something with eyes"
"Sketch something you use to clean the house"
"Sketch something beginning with t"
"Sketch something you find in a toolbox"
And just to prove that I join in too, here are some of mine:
"Sketch something you see in an art museum"
"Sketch something with antennae"
"Sketch something you study in science"
Have I convinced you yet?
If you don't already participate, then head on over to Harmony Art Mom and check it out. There's nothing to lose!
