One of my absolute joys is to help little kids figure out how to draw stuff. Coming from an artistic family, a certain brother of mine who shall remain nameless (Phil) made fun of my drawing skills when I was but a wee one. (Another story for another time.)
Anyway, in preschool we work on breaking things down into easy shapes, and focus heavily on the idea that we are just practicing this skill. We know that what we draw is not going to look exactly like the real thing and that is OK. (Phil)
We’ve been visiting Concordia for some walking field trips, and since this weekend is Concordia’s Homecoming, I decided we should make some window decorations to cheer them on.
Nice, eh? Check out those Bulldogs! Lemme show you how to make them:
1. A swoopy capital G
2. A lazy on-its-side S
5. Angry eyebrows
6. Two fangy teeth
7. Two bent ears (ears are hard)
8. A spiky collar.
Done and done! After practicing, this is what we can do!
I groove on its eyeless-zombie vibe, as I do the hallucinating panda in the banner photo.
