July 2012: Drawing with kids in the Stanford Museum, a photo by apple-pine on Flickr.
Notes: we made little sketchbooks out f single sheet of letter sized paper (here is example) - good idea. Each one had a pencil (museum does not allow pens - I was hiding mine every time guards were passing by as I had to share pencil when one of the leads broke :), so next time I will need more pencils plus eraser plus something small and sturdy to avoid leaning on precious artifacts for sketchbook support :) I had one little book with me - but they all wanted one. Oh, and carrots for the "after the museum" part were good - need to bring more and do the "sharing" of the sketched on the steps - with carrots - before kung-fu panda enters their mind :)
These are great sketches, I like it how you captured so many feelings and actions with so few lines. How the kids concentrate and observe each object they draw so ever carefully. I really like the girl on the bench, great fun pose. Looks like you all had a fantastic day together : )ReplyDelete
