Every year, my kids school, Los Alamitos Elementary School, has an annual show of the art the kids create all year round. I get to be ‘visiting artist’ and set up a little table with my sketches and sketchbooks. My favorite part is sketching all that’s going on at the show.
Here are a bunch of quick little sketches of kids at the piano.
I watched Hiroko Sasaki, a visiting artist, create pages and pages of beautiful calligraphy on rice paper with India ink.And then there’s all the hands-on crafts for kids. My two favorite ones from this year were ‘Spin Art’ (always a favorite with the kids) and ‘Making Oaxacan Animals’.
