Topic: Drawing Lesson
September children's drawing workshop themes are "Farms and Gathering the Harvest". We will do farm animals in the next few weeks. These are my demonstration drawings from this week's workshop at Rockland Public Library. Click the titles for coloring pages.
The kids wondered HOW? were they going to draw all that hay in the photo by Kosti Ruohomaa I showed them. No, they would never be able to do it. We can't draw that! I drew the hay in simple mound shapes and finally later dashed in some strokes to indicate hay sticking out. The kids made exuberant pounding sounds on the table as they dashed in their own hay strokes.
We'd come to the end of our time and had not gotten to squirrels. I quickly told them the story of Beatrix Potter's The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin. We chose some squirrels fishing to draw from. We never got to do any chipmunks.
