Drawing For Real Life – Architecture For Kids

  I visited the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles with my daughter.  Sunday, September 8th,  was the last opportunity to see their current exhibit A. Quincy Jones: Building for Better Living. There are so many great opportunities to appreciate art around us and I love taking the time to share and explore them with my 5 year-old daughter. Drawing for kids is mostly a hobby.  By visiting the Hammer, I wanted my daughter to understand how drawing fits into everyday life and introduce her to one of the careers possible in the arts. I explained to her who an architect is and

Drawing With Children – Mother & Daughter Artists

  Finding time to draw with my child is something I look forward to.  This weekend my daughter delighted herself in writing and illustrating two little books.  She gathers paper and has me “bind” it with staples and off she goes to write and draw.  One little book was about tying her shoes and the other about the Powerpuff Girls – she’s 5 with diverse interests ;o). She said that she wanted to be an author when she grew up.  I explained that she didn’t have to be a grown-up to an author, that she could be one now.  Her

Free Museum Days in LA for Kids

My daughter and I talk about drawing and painting everyday.  Today she had fun drawing by turning a simple piece of paper into a “phone”.  She drew the buttons, added some lines for numbers to call and then made one for all of us so we could “talk”.  I love how she just decided to create them out of paper with a pen.  In this day of technology, it’s a wonder that my kid still says “Mom, can I have a piece of paper and a pen?”.  I know that as a Mom who supports drawing and painting for kids,
