The Art Box – July 12, 2010

Finally, another Art Box post. :)  Things have been a little unsettled around here lately, and we are just getting back into our routine.  I love having a routine.  I love it very, very much. :)
We’ve been doing some outdoor painting lately.  There’s nothing like making a mess in the grass, then washing up in the pool.  It’s the ideal kind of art.  M just loves his makeshift outdoor easel and has been asking for one since summer began (I made one for him last summer too, you can read about how to make one here).  He painted up a storm, and using the clips to hold the paper on was a stroke of genius – he was able to remove and replace paper by himself!june 2010 067
Here are two of the three painting he made outside:
june 2010 080  june 2010 079 The third painting, is at someone else’s house… the last we saw it was blowing away.  Oops. 
M has done much, much more art than this, but I haven’t been very good about taking pictures the past 3 weeks.  You can imagine lots of glue, glitter-glue, and googley eyes, and you’ll pretty much know what it’s looked like. ;)

If you have a kid's art post, link it up below! Be sure to link back here somewhere in your post.

Have a beautiful day! :)

  3. oo love the outdoor painting! I think we will some of that this week!

  4. Just made that easel this morning after reading your post! We are LOVING it!!

  5. I admit that every time we have been outside this month it was at the pool. M's paintings are great as always, and I can totally imagine his glitter glue series :)
