Colourful Paintings

My Colourful Rhino

I recently taught a paining class to a bunch of great kids, who of course produced some amazing artwork. The goal was to teach composition, colour theory, foreground and background.  Using an animal or bug as a main theme, they were to split it up into segments and utilize their colour wheels (previously made) to  add colour and interest.  These are what the kids came up with:

Aren't they wonderful?  ANd a bunch of amazing kids to boot.  I love teaching kids art.  They usually have a larger sense of creativity without the inhibitions society imposes on us.  Sadly few of us keep that into our later years.  Happy to say I am one of the few :)

Hope you are enjoying this beautiful weekend!
