 Music Monday on Harmony Fine Arts Join us every Monday for a new musical selection.Symphony No. 4 in E Minor by Johannes Brahms

You will be captivated from the very first notes of this symphony! I can visualize all kinds of things as I listen…parts of it make me think I can be sailing on a boat and other parts I am soaring over fields of wildflowers. What images come to your mind as you listen? I hope you enjoy this selection as you do your sketching for the slideshow.

Extra bonus activity for Renoir: Charles and Georges Durand-Ruel

Music Monday on Harmony Fine Arts Join us every Monday for a new musical selection.

Listen to a composer who created music during the same time period that Renoir painted, Antonin Dvorak. This week I picked a little bit longer selection but I think your family will find it easy to listen to and enjoy as you work on your sketches.

Sketch Tuesday – Slideshow and Summer Plans

Sketch Tuesday Drawing Assignments @harmonyfinearts small

This school year has just flown by and here we are at the last slideshow of the season. Thank you to the families who participated this week! Plus I appreciate your patience as we have been moving this website to a new server with a few minor hiccups. I am hoping this move eliminates the security issue that has been going on for some time.

See the information below for details about this summer’s Sketch Tuesday and Music Monday plans.

Here is this week’s slideshow: Sketch something from your pantry.

Sketch Tuesday Plans for June through August 2018

Look for the first summer Sketch Tuesday post on June 5, 2018.

June Plans

We are going to be taking a look at a famous painting and then creating a sketch to go along with that painting. I will also include a little something extra for families that want to have additional art related activity.

Because of my family’s plans for the month of June, I will not be posting a slideshow every week but you will see clearly in the Sketch Tuesday posts which ones will have a slideshow opportunity.


July Plans

I will again be sharing a beautiful painting each week and reposting an art activity that will go along with it. There will be no weekly Sketch Tuesday slideshow but rather one big slideshow at the end of the month. So, when you finish your Sketch Tuesday assignment each week, please send it in for the big  end of July Sketch Tuesday slideshow. Instructions will be in each weekly post.


August Plans

This month there will only be an art supply suggestion. You come up with the topic! At the end of the month we will again do a large slideshow with everyone’s August artwork. I am trying to take it easy in August so this will be a way for me to encourage you but take a little work load off so I can be outside enjoying the amazing August weather here in Central Oregon.

I realize many of you will take a break from Sketch Tuesday over the summer months so enjoy your time off too!

Once September rolls around again, we will be back to our normal Sketch Tuesday routine.

Music Monday Plans for June 2018 through August 2018

I will be combining Music Monday and Sketch Tuesday into one post for the summer as an experiment to see if it is less work on my part.
