Art Lessons and Resources for Kids

I found Deep Space Sparkle yesterday.  Love at first sight, I must say.  Patty Goleta is an art teacher at two elementary schools in CA, and here are a sampling of her art projects, divided by age groups.  The name Deep Space Sparkle is Patty’s favorite Crayon color, “conjuring up spoonfuls of imagination and endless possibilities.”  How amazing is this City at Night?

Another site I adore is Artful Parenting, chockfull of a plethora of ideas.  Jean Van’t Hal’s background is art, and since she’s been at home with her little one, she’s started a Toddler Art Group and documented the results.  Take a look at the Puffy Paint activity.

The Children’s Craft Collective Crafty Crow has myriads of fun ideas.  The site links to various other sites, acting like a catchall for cleverness.  Like this one from Filth Wizardry: Lowercase and Uppercase Floor Alphabet Game.  Or More Mom Time’s ABC Bean Bag Toss.  Or Whip Up’s Veggie Prints.

Never a moment to be bored.  Life is more exciting when you’re creating.

Have a creative weekend…or a restful one that will restore your creativity!

The quote I live by

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
--Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet
