Sketch Tuesday – Mountains

Sketch Tuesday Drawing Assignments @harmonyfinearts small

I love our summer sketch time together! I am so appreciative of the families that take time to create some art during the summer and then share it with the slideshow. I hope these slideshows encourage you to make some art with your family during this more relaxed period of time, especially on those long hot summer afternoons where you retreat inside.

Current assignment: Sketch some mountains. You can view the images below for some inspiration! Due Date: Monday, July 3, 2017.

Specific instructions for the Summer Plans of 2017: I will be listing a topic below but each week I will also be posting some inspirational paintings in the Sketch Tuesday post to help you get started. You are welcome to complete Sketch Tuesday like always with anything that comes to mind with the theme. Or, you can use one of the paintings as the inspiration, copying all or part of it as you wish.

Also, I want to encourage you to branch out in your art media since the summer season is perfect for trying new things! Pick something you want to experiment with and learn how to use the art supplies alongside your children.
