Art Adventures

Mom took us out on an art field trip today. She started out in a good mood, but then got really cranky about the whole thing. You can read about it here. Anyway - we had a great time and got to sketch in the museum and continued when we got back home. Here's what we came up with...
I sketched a really cool glass trophy skull. At first I thought it was real, but then Mom told me someone blew glass through a tube and made it. I saw a guy blow a glass mug at Stone Mountain. Totally wicked.
We saw some really big paintings by this guy, Hunt Slonem. I mean, they were humungous. They had a lot of macaws on them, and I like macaws, so I drew one.
Joshua liked the macaws, too, but he thought the composition needed something, so he added a big tree with lots of limbs to his sketch. He's just like that.

When we got home, he drew this picture of a pig queen. He makes his "p" backwards because he's just a little kid. And it only says "Mom" on it because it is for Mom...she's not a pig queen. :-D

We also signed up for art classes at a local art center that will start in March. We're pretty excited about it. Mom says we may learn how to paint so we can be artists when we grow up. Or firemen...or secret agents...or clowns.
