Type Restrictions: Any Type

Description:

Got young 'uns in the house? Do they ask to paint with mommy or to play with daddy's clay? Here is your chance to encourage their creativity. Make a work of art together in any medium or any subject matter. What matters is that you all work together, each contributing something to the finished product. From conception through decisions on where you hang your picture or which grandparent to give it to, everyone involved should have input and be part of the creative process.

Remember, in order to help keep the discussions on projects organized, you should post your questions, suggestions, and comments on submitted work here in this thread. By doing this, we allow other non-project efforts to not get "pushed down" by a swarm of project-related threads.

Thanks Chris!... I'm looking forward to seeing if anyone will bite, and what they will wind up doing with their young'uns...

.. and Tam.. doesn't have to be with your own young'uns.. if you have access to any at all, the project could be done with any variety of small people (although the ones I'm working with are not so "small" anymore... the oldest can practically look me in the eye, and his feet are twice the size of mine)

Cheers!.. thanks for looking and commenting!

Great idea for a project. Now I know what you were giggling about so madly the other day.

Well, now ... Fritz is still MY young'un, (even though he is soon to be 34), can we put together a project ... we even have a Great Grandma to give it to, or Grand kids!! Hum huh?

Good luck with this new project. Should be lots of fun.

Giggly madly?.. me?.. never... yes!.. young'uns of any age count.. besides the age ratio between my kids and myself and your kids and yourself is the same, so... ::grins::.. Please... put something together with Fritz.. it would be grand!

Alrighty now... we have all done our sketches, and uploaded the images to the project gallery. Dad is not home this week, being sent off to Germany by the Air Force for some silly conference, so the boys and I are trying to keep from going all pathetic.. we are a funny lot... very independant, but when Dad is gone, we all just bump around with no direction or purpose... so... we sat down with some home made pizza, an old favorite movie and a pile of pictures of NiteOwl and came up with our sketches. Hans, the 11 year old has decided to go with a close up of the horse's eye, while DeForest, the 9 year old has chosen to depict him in heaven. De has decided he will use color pencils, while Hans is still undecided... tomorrow I will trace the sketches onto the main piece, mask them and put in the background washes... hopefully I don't ruin it at that stage... if all goes well I think we will try to get someone to put color in their's tomorrow evening.

We are having a grand time working together! We are looking forward to seeing what others will come up with!

Trin (the Momma), Hans and DeForest

P.S... the icon for this project was done by Hans at his first highschool art class last week...

Thank you, it's one of the first horse pictures I've done. I'm glad you like, I hope Grandma likes it too. I will try to use the highlight in the eye like you said. Thank you for the idea!

Hans,

Well, look at me. I was telling your momma how wonderful your idea and drawing was, and figured she would tell you. That is okay, but it isn't me telling you myself. Nite Owl had a very intelligent and gentle look in his eyes. He could go from standing still so my little children could walk around under him to teaching your momma how to ride the jumps.

I can't wait to see your progress with this.

DeForest,

I am really pleased with your idea of Nite Owl jumping for apples in Heaven. It is right what he would love to be doing.

I also really like your drawing. I am looking forward to seeing it progress. Have fun with it.

This is beautiful, Anney! Would love to hear the story about how it was made!... looking at it, my first impression was as if I were looking through a wet window into the garden, then as I looked I could see faces in the colors!... What a very nice job!!

I am impressed by this apple tree. You must really like apples to know how to make such a lovely tree. Keep up the good work young man. You are a wonderful artist. :clap:

Hi Trin
Thanks for the wonderful project, my kids are very excited and painting their little hearts out. Now if I can scan them as quick as they paint them I'll be ok. Really neat to see that they each have a distinct style. Oldest is an abstract style and younger is more of a realist/impressionist. Will post more soon as I can get them scanned.

P.S.. I'm glad you and your kids are enjoying the project!

Hello,

Thanks for all the comments.

I framed the appletree and put it on my bedside table. I imagine an older children would have been really proud of it, but he was 3 1/2 and just asked why. He worked on his own, but I was painting a big apple at this moment, so I really had the feeling he wanted to do like me.

The fingertip painting was done with the very low quality fingertip paint the school's father XMas gave him (low quality = unwashable). As far as I remember it is a dragon. At the end of the painting, it had a lot of volume but after a long drying, it turned out flat. I fear that also the colors may vary on the long run, but thanks to the project I have a digital image now.

Our new "art together" is mostly that I have to draw boats (I will move that from the boats project to the sketchbook project), but he recently asked to make photos:

This last entry was shot Saturday, and he did the framing, I pressed the button, since it is MY digital camera.

Thanks TrinTheScribe for this project, it is a great opportunity to keep track of these moments, time is running so fast!

Anne.

My painting mentor from Appalachian State, Gary Nemcosky, does a series like this. He and his five year old Hannah make art together. Here's a link to four of the pieces:

Well hello everyone! I'm sorry I've been quiet for such a long time!... life kinda got hectic for a while!

The goodies you have been posting are all wonderful! I hope you have been enjoying getting artsy with your kids!

Our project has come to a bit of a halt for a while, but half term is looming at the end of the week and we are looking forward to having the time and the energy to work on our picture for Grandma. I have the background wash in, and laid the gold leaf on my own medallion, and will wait for the boys to do theirs before I go back to the actual painting of my medallion... we have yet to decide how to paint the main picture.. I was hoping we could all put our hand to it, but I'm not sure how that will work...
We'll keep you posted and hopefully have some wip's for you to see next week!

Keep up the creativity!
Sincerely,
Trin
