More kid sketches.

There’s no better place to sketch kids than the Children’s Discovery Museum, San Jose.
My favorite exhibits are the simple ones: the floating ball machine that fascinates little kids and the pinscreen full of soft-edged pins you can make handprints or even bodyprints into. The kids really enjoyed the contraption that lets you control traffic lights the old-fashioned way.

The waterplay area at the museum is a big, complex set of tubes and pipes with steaming fountains, jets of water that push up balls, whirling discs and lots of colorful balls. Kid love it.

The Art Loft area is where kids sit ( relatively) still while they make little art projects. A great spot to sketch some kids while my daughter makes a little collage using scraps of paper, cloth and feathers.

More sketches from my day at the museum on my flickr site.

    I just love your work, so much fun. What size sketch pad were you using on the two antique cars at the start of the slide show. It almost looks like a hot press paper. thanks, Grace Date: Sun, 1 Dec 2013 21:00:23 +0000 To:
