Sweet Pea Academy: Art, Week 1 - Kandinksy & Indiana

080714 Sophia drawing

This isn't an official "art project" of Sophia's, but she drew it on her own, copying a book cover of a much smaller size. I think it demonstrates what a great little skill she's developing, here, at age 9.

I've been following the Art Projects For Kids site and blog for a number of years now, and in addition to the Native American arts and crafts we're going to be doing during this 2014-2015 school year, I want to spend each Friday doing at least one project from Kathy Barbro's site.

We started our school year this past Tuesday, after a false start on Monday, so yesterday we got out our new Art notebooks and supplies and worked on a project inspired by this, Robert Indiana's "LOVE":

Robert Indiana - Love (April 2010 Mix Cover)

Sophia's work was largely imitative:

082214 Sophia, Artist Robert Indiana,

while I let the kids pick whatever four-letter word (!!) they wanted. Jack's turned out like this:

082214 Jack, Artist Robert Indiana

and Chloë, not surprisingly, chose to do this:

082214 Chloë, Artist Robert Indiana.

After the Littles went to bed, Chloë still wanted to do another art project based on the APFK blog, so I had her do one based off this, Wassily Kandinky's "Farbstudie Quadrate":

She took it in a whole different direction, which I love, and this was her finished result:

082314 Chloë, Artist Kandinksy

I just love it! What do you think?

Maybe today, when the bitties wake up, I'll have them do their own interpretation of Kandinsky's circles.

Thanks for stopping by!
