Artful Day

This is what we did today.


We used these acrylic paints and real artist canvas frames.

Quinn painted Godzilla with bloody teeth (Ew. Not sure I want to know what "Zilly" had been eating). He's a big fan of Godzilla these days, although he's never seen any of his movies.

Riley went more for the abstract. Can't you see this on a museum wall? He was quite serious about his art. You can't see it, but he even has the paint texture on his art (although I don't think that was done on purpose, but hey, it works!)

Here are all of them together. Kevin's is the top left, a beach scene, and mine is the orange house. Look closely and you can see the texture on Riley's art.



The boys really enjoyed using the canvas-I think they really felt like real artists. We are going to hang them up in the hall, on our own museum wall.

I think they turned out beautifully!! My two love painting on a canvas too - I think you're right, it does make them feel really special like real artists.
