Thursday Art Club: Super Stories!

For art club today, I borrowed the "Mad Libs" method of story writing from the LUX event we were invited to last week. But because my kids are a bit younger, and seem to be partial to fashion design, I altered the project considerably to please the crowd.

Thursday Art Club Returns: Speed Drawing and Sketchbooks

Thursday Art Club is back! Today I decided to challenge the kids a bit. We did an activity called "speed drawing," the result of which was five small sketches, all taking different amounts of time.

Comic Artists hosted by the Lux Art Institute!

Yesterday, I drove down to the Cardiff area to join LUX Art Institute's T{w}eensday Art Event. It was a great opportunity to inspire and enlighten young artists who love to read and draw comics.

Water-logged Sketchbook

I would have made a new year's resolution to keep up with this blog, but I know myself too well. Another hiatus will most definitely happen in the future, so there's no point denying it. I'd rather live in the now.

I caught a friend of mine trying to throw out a water-damaged sketchbook a few weeks ago. I hate to see paper go to waste, so I adopted the little guy.
