Do you like to draw? We are starting a yearlong art journaling project at MHC. Each Monday, we will share five ideas/thought starters to do with your children at home. Art journaling is a great way for kids to express themselves, share what is on their mind and learn new art skills and techniques in a collective place.
The MHC art journaling is a time that we hope your family will enjoy drawing, sharing and continuing to make memories together.
Artwork can be collected in various forms, a few ideas include:
- A bound journal
- Handmade journals
- Blank spiral notebook
- 8 ½ X 11 sheets of paper and placed in a 3 ring binder
- Large index cards an hole punched and placed on a ring
If you have other collective ideas of how to place your drawing, please comment below so that we can all learn and share.
To kick off our first week…here is our first weeks list.
- Draw something that you are thankful for.
- Meet the _____ (place you last name)
Attempt to expand your children’s art mediums from, say, sketching with pencils to water colors, acrylics, or chalk. One idea might be to create an impression of the same idea, say sunshine, and use a different medium for it every day, and then compare it in the journal.
