Hello there! I'm Kathleen, a former art teacher and co-creator of two young boys. I'm perpetually in search of creative ways to spice up our daily lives, and always in search of a good cup of coffee and a knitting project. Join us in our adventures in making and doing, and making do.
With the aid of some Easter bunny chalk, Chris made this over the weekend.
It's a lesson in impermanence, in that, like sand mandala artwork, will be washed away by wind, feet and rain.
Soren really got into it, and I'm always pleased when he sees his Dada and I making arts and crafts; I think it sets a great example for the value of art in our home.
In case you're wondering, Chris actually went to art school prior to working in Info Tech. He's slowly been trying to come to terms with his creativity again, and trying to let go of his desire for perfection. Perhaps this impermanent sort of art is freeing, in that there's no pressure to be perfect because it will wash away.
What kinds of arts to you practice in front of your children?
