A Picasso Bird

Carla Sonheim shared how to make Picasso Dogs that were 3-dimensional in her free summer art camp for kids this summer.  If you missed it, please check out Carla’s online classes at CarlaSonheim.com

I decided to try my hand at a Picasso bird yesterday…

I have it folded into a mini book, below is the front and back:

The unveiling…

 

 

Can you find the 2 eyes, 2 wings, 2 feet and a beak?

Klee Inspired

Carla Sonheim’s FREE Kid’s Art Camp started yesterday online.  Any age KID can join in the fun!  You can find out more about it at CarlaSonheim.com – go to her link for online classes.

I really enjoyed the first lesson that was inspired by Paul Klee and his grid patterns of color.

I started with a crayon outline of my Wordpress name, Art Jill Kuhn and added a few patterns too!  I then painted the sections with watercolor:

Next, I added a wash of yellow paint over it:

And I finished it by outlining it in one color of crayon to unify it:

This was so much FUN that I had to try another one!

This one says, Love The Lake:

With a yellow wash:

And a final crayon outline:

I encourage you to give it a try!

Happy Creating!  🙂

P.S. I’m still on vacation this week but I wanted to share this fun class with you all!  And of course I will posting a weird bird on Wednesday!  😉

What’s In A Name?

The imaginary animal I created yesterday with the letter, “Y” inspired me to create these imaginary creatures with the letters of my name today:

Jill name

I think this would be a fun project for kids!  Especially around the holidays when they are on Christmas break from school.

Maybe they just want to create their initials:

JK initials

Or maybe they have a nickname:

Jilly creatures

I hope you have FUN creating imaginary creatures with someone you love!

Would love to see what you do!

Happy Creating!  🙂
