My artistic little eight-year-old loves to explore his creativity with all kinds of arts and crafts projects and has been hard at work creating some amazing mixed media projects after learning about oil pastels at school.
This springtime rainy-day picture is one of my favourites!
He used white oil pastels for the raindrops and coloured crayons for the rainbow, then painted in the sky and ground with watercolour paints.
For this "Northern Lights" picture he started with dark lines in oil pastels, then blended between the lines with chalk pastel. He then cut out pieces of black construction paper for the inukshuk and glued them on.
Traditional painting and drawing are always fun - but use your imagination to combine different kinds of arts and crafts to see what amazing artistic creations you can come up with!
