This is a little 'pop-up' art piece that our Curly Girl did to pass the time.......all the characters stand up like a pop up card. The little angel hangs out over the top.

This is a picture our curly girl drew for her art class.....for perspective.

This is one of the pictures our Curly girl came up with while doing her '20 minutes' of drawing practice for her art class.

Fire and Water

Friday was regular (in the classroom) art day. It is every other Friday and the classroom teacher has the kids do something 'artsy...'

This Friday, the teacher gave one instruction to the kids regarding their pictures.
She asked them to draw 'opposites...'

This is what our curly girl came up with.

Sketch of giraffe and horse

As part of her gifted class, she is asked to practice drawing things a few minutes 3 times a week.
These are 2 of her pictures she did this week.
The giraffe held the attention of the entire pediatrician's office today while she was drawng it.

It only takes her a few minutes to 'whip' a picture up.

Tissue box 'pet town'

I told you my daughter likes art....but I forgot to mention that she wants to be an architect.

About every 6 weeks, she will ask us to start collecting tissue boxes.
Then, she will go into her room and design a 'town' of some sort. She has done many of these....from bedrooms to malls. Most have sleeping quarters, kitchens, playrooms....the lot.
This one is a modest 'pet town' for her growing stash of pet shop critters. (Although she has the giant sets that come with the critters, she wanted something special for them. )

This one has a daycare, several ladders that go to the next level, a trapdoor in case of a fire or other emergency, a sun deck, a play room and just some 'rooms to hang out in.'

It will last about a week or so and then she'll come home from school and ditch it.

Then we wait until next time.......
