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:

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!  😉

Peacock Feathers

The colors in this leaf print remind me of peacock feathers:

leaf printing with all techniques

I printed my leaves with acrylic paints.  I then decided to experiment and combine watercolor, crayon resist and water soluble markers.

I would not have thought of combining these techniques if I had not taken Carla Sonheim’s FREE Art classes for Kids!

I started playing and had so much fun!

I have found a new way to create papers for my collages!
