SEPTEMBER ART & CRAFT PROJECT AT THE LIBRARY – RECAP PART 2

I can't believe how much fun we all had at my ANIMAL HEADS Art and Craft event at the North Beach branch of the San Francisco Public Library. Everyone was given permanent ink drawings to color with water soluble crayons and then go mad with sticking on crazy stuff.

During my events, my favorite results come from Preschoolers when adults leave them to let their creativity run wild. I don’t think any panda has ever looked better! See more images from my Art and Craft Library events here!

After a fun-filled day at TelHi during their summer program, these preschool and 1st graders are coloring my line drawings. The story is based on my MY DOG HENRY Preschool Color Story. Like everyone else, I of course write stories about my dog, a charming yorkie named Henry. The children were terrific and inspired, although by this time they were ready for their pick me up snack!

Here are a few photos from my preschool and 1st grade summer event at TelHi. They are coloring images from my MY DOG HENRY story. I gave them line drawings inspired by my yorkie Henry. The children didn’t need any encouragement to ignore his actual coloring. I love their individuality and enthusiasm! Download my Preschool Color Stories for free here!

FISH ART & CRAFT PROJECT – RESULTS FROM SMALL CHILDREN

Click on an image for a slide show!

My FISH event at the North Beach branch of the San Francisco library went very well with about 40 people.

Using water-soluble crayons seems to enable small children to get good results. They color and then paint with water. The younger the child, the more they stick on afterwards. I love seeing their results and think them very clever. See more images of my FISH event on my Art and Craft Projects page.
