inspired by nature and real people

Today for our art group, I thought it would be fun to do some nature collages inspired by this new season that has appeared in all it's glory. We were in the mountains the other day and it is so unbelievable beautiful right now in Colorado. I wish we had had the camera with us so I could show you. Might be reason to take another drive...

To get things started, we went hunting around the yard for some fun things to make collages with. We found leaves, rocks, bark, dirt, pine cones and pine needles. We even found some bear poop, but decided to leave that alone..

And then the kids got to work.

We busted out the paint and it got really messy, I think kids should always have paint on their hands.. or feet, or hair...

While we were waiting for our friends to arrive, Chubbas was chomping at the bit to get started, so I gave him some markers to do a little drawing while he waited. He proceeded to draw his first ever family portrait of all of us!

And then a picture of his friends...

Amazing-real people! Very cool to see your kiddo move from scribbling to drawing recognizable pictures. He also drew his house and his toy box. Obviously, the most important things to this 3 year old! I am forever dazzled by the creative process being expressed by these young minds. It is truly wonderful.
