The kids’ school is having Art Week this week and Zoë is all over it. She came back yesterday and told us that she had to draw something in the style of Keith Haring, so that she can submit it for consideration as art for one of the school walls. She googled Keith Haring’s art and started to draw away. She drew all the shapes with a pencil first before outlining them with a thick black marker last night. She said that she would finish coloring in the outlines today.
As it happened, I was at an art supplies shop today with my friend and the shop was having a store-wide 15% discount. I came across the Crayola paintbrush pens that I thought Zoë might like. She put them to use immediately! The paint brush pens are so fun to use that I couldn’t help asking if I could help her paint in some of her shapes. She “directed” me to color in the purple guy with the yellow hula hoop.
Josh was pretty impressed when Zoë showed him this. Pretty cool, isn’t it?
