Sketch Assignment Due June 29, 2015: Create your own Miro inspired artwork by either copying the painting in this week’s lesson or using the Roll a Miro activity in this pin on Pinterest: Roll a Miro.

Note: I had trouble printing the Roll a Miro activity out but you can just work from your computer or other device’s screen. Roll your dice and then look on the chart to see the shapes to use in your Miro project.

Here an alternative page to look at for more inspiration: Deep Space Sparkle.

Favorite Three June Edition

Three Favorites from Harmony Art Mom @harmonyfinearts

 

Summers should be a time for refreshment, creativity, and exploring. In my world, that means getting out the art supplies, taking day trips to new places to try new trails, and finding time to be with family and friends. It is an outdoor time of the year where we spend long summer evenings relaxing on the back deck after dinner talking and perhaps playing a game until the sun goes down. We have done all these things already this summer and it fuels in me a desire to do even more!

This week my daughter will be coming home to spend some time with us and we are going to do just that! She expressed her desire to visit a few people and to travel to a couple of our favorite summertime spots….Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park. I am always eager to visit those two places so we will be hopping in the car and making day trips out of them both. Stay tuned for glimpses into those adventures soon here on the blog!

In the meantime, here are this month’s Favorite Three things.

Crayola Super Tips

1. Crayola 50ct Washable Super Tips with Silly Scents- I have been using these to complete my Sketch Tuesday assignments (this is my affiliate link). I know that I have shared them here before but I wanted you to know that even now I have them as my “go to” markers. They have such great colors and they last a long time. I highly recommend them for your family. Note: Several of the markers have “silly scents” but they are not overpowering.

2. Love this video about willow basketry…something I would love to have the opportunity to do. This is on my favorites list as an inspiration to me and for all of you. Finding a new craft that you can explore can bring such delight.

Making Willow Baskets

3. Night Sky App - We truly love this app for identifying the stars we see in the sky. I know that many people know about this sort of app but I will find among my acquaintances those that didn’t know there was such a thing. So this is your official invitation from me to give it a try! (The Night Sky this is my affiliate link.)
