A few weeks ago I joined the local grade one class again to do another art lesson. I began the art lesson by teaching them the basic colour wheel (introducing the primary and secondary colours). I then guided them into drawing themselves as though they were catching snowflakes on their tongue. The kids had fun using their own individual ideas as to how that looked:
It was fun finding the completed pictures out in the hallway a few weeks later, with poems that the kids had written about their artwork:
I live in Southern Ontario on a farm with my husband, Dennis, and our two daughters. Painting out of my studio on our farm allows me to stay close to my family and to be surrounded by the natural landscape that continues to influence my work.
