Putting the artsy tip into practice & Let’s talk about…

Following up the art lessons that we have been having, I thought of getting C to do a birthday card for his grandpa since his birthday was around the corner. We glanced through the IPad for pictures that he likes and this is the one he chose. You can read through the artsy tips given by the teachers to help our kids to draw and paint by clicking on this link.

This is the drawing chosen by C to draw for his grandpa.

To help him out, I drew the picture on a piece of drawing paper. We outlined the head before he started to colour it.

Next, we moved on to the tie. Similarly, we outlined the tie first. Mistake made here was that he went out of line and we had to enlarge the tie in the end. I forgot that we should start with the lighter colour as suggested by his art teachers.

We moved on to the shirt, and as you can tell, I divided it into smaller parts.

This is the final result. I asked C to draw hair like the one in the picture but he ended up drawing it in circles from one side of the ear to the other.

I guided C in tracing the picture. If you look closely, you can see the hands that he drew. He calls them octopus. I didn’t manage to capture the writing part as well but I think he did in an awesome job!

A few of the family members did comment that grandpa looks like grandma instead due to the hair. We had a few good laughs! It doesn’t matter. I believe grandpa loves it nonetheless.

We follow up with the activity with a ‘Let’s talk about’ and ‘Fill-in’the-blanks’ the following day. I do this with C everyday to help him capture these memories as it helps to formulate his thoughts and speech.
