'kids' art week at Carla Sonheim: day 2

Another lesson with Carla Sonheim's free online

This time we used oil pastels to draw
the "Young Hare" by Albrecht Durer in 1502!

A close up of my daughter's hare,
she prefers drawing realistic drawings and has worked in pastel before
so she knew how to blend and ended up with a bolder drawing.
I love the detail of the fur!

'kids' art week at Carla Sonheim

 Just popping in to tell you about
that started yesterday
(but you can still sign up)
with the lovely Carla Sonheim.
There are lots of kids-at-heart (18+) in the class too!
I signed my family up
to learn a few new techniques.

The first class was drawing blob animals.
We had to find a blob-like object
and then make it into an imaginary animal.

I did these 2 yesterday,
and hope that my son draws 1 today.

If you want to sign up, Carla's class doesn't close
so you can do the classes at any time.
 
Carla is such an inspiring instructor, I love watching her enthusiastic videos.
 We're off to watch the next class -
drawing the Durer rabbit with oil pastels!
Enjoy your day,

In this week's challenge, we will be creating
a Zentangle art work using


The pattern was inspired by water nymphs in Greek mythology.
There are so many different ways to draw Naida.
However, I've chosen to draw it as a ribbon
along the lower third of the tile,
and added pearls along the outside edges of it.


I hope you have fun with it.
I can't wait to see what you create with this prompt.
