So from the time I posted about Sairah’s art work here, we have kept ourselves ‘busy’ by working on MORE art pieces and lil projects to kill time.
One of the things I always drill into her when doing any art piece is to keep it as colorful and inject different types of colors where possible.
Coz hey, there must be a good reason why crayons and art supplies come in MANY colors right?!
In the spirit of X’mas, we decided to work on these:
My facebook feed is being blasted with Christmas-y craft so I figured teaching her how to make a snowman was almost mandatory:
Do you want to build a snowman?
Followed by a X’mas tree and a star cut out which is sitting prettily on our sliding door handle, lol.
Incase you’re squinting your eyes trying to figure out what she wrote, it’s an ‘Under The Sea’ theme art piece which was very easy for her to do. But O.m.g at the hand-writing, lol needs MORE practice I’m sure.
Is it me or did you also sing to the tune of Under the Sea from The Little Mermaid after seeing this :eek:
I got her these set of doll cut outs so she decided to give them names and wanted to draw designs on them.
Do not disturb. Lil designer at work working on her first collection.
And if one row of girls weren’t enough, she said she wanted to give them cousins hence another row of girls were created so they could just all hang out together.
Is this just like a United of Colors of Benetton ad or what?!
Hey hey galfriendsss, let’s chill out or o.m.g let’s shopppp!
This.Is.A.Boat. Which she was happy to do because she wanted her dolls to take the boat for a spin
This was a fun piece for her given how they were tons of glue-ing involved! Very easy peasy to create tho it may look a lil advanced for a 4 year old. Heh.
Apple Tree using paint and crepe paper for apples.
Moving on to some of her doodle art:
Her happy family potrait
And her doodle entitled: Grandma & Sairah
Squiggly colored lines after our lesson of injecting various colors.
Squiggly lines + colored lolly sticks. Only because we have tons of em around.
Sairah’s hand-made X’mas tree in her lil ‘home’, haha
Said ‘home’. We got this for under $15 and she absolutely loves to spend time hanging out in her own lil space. Also when she gets scolding, this will be her first go-to place to avoid us, lol.
Most times in her tent are spent reading her library books. Obviously she can’t read for now but I reckon when she finally can she’ll be quite the book worm. She just loves to look at the pictures and would make up her own stories as she goes along. And if we’ve read em to her before, she will repeat the same story but in her own words.
She has quite the imagination and memory power on her I have to say.
Occasionally she’ll get a giant intruder in her lil space, haha
Help mom there’s a fat monster in my tent
Snippity snip snip the safety scissors go…
Working on some ‘monster eyes’ art.
Some of her art pieces can be a lil eccentric I know, lol. But that’s what being creative is all about right? Right.
It was her Uncle’s birthday so we decided to make a ‘birthday cake’ for him.
Sairah the Lion takes on a lion piece. Roar!
This is something she worked on a few days ago. The father had bought an art easel some time ago but we’ve hardly seen him work on it so Sairah decided to hijack it and put it to good use, at last!
Using finger painting technique:
Love her concentration when working on her art. Hoping she’ll be like this in school too, heh.
Heyyy no peeking: ze master piece iz almost ready.
Hmm how to make this more colorful?!
The final result: finger painting on canvas entitled: Cockatoo!
What do you think?
Looks like the lil artist is proud and content with it. So you have be too!
We moved on to finger painting on paper.
Showed some pretty smooth skills of using her fingers and palm to create the texture she wanted.
Careful fingers…slow and steady wins the game.
I know. Not for the faint heart! Luckily washing it off was easier than expected.
And she decided to call this: The Colors of The World. Don’t ask but we spend time coming up with names for each piece. I think it adds a lil something to it and creates more appreciation on the pieces done.
Some of her other finger painting pieces:
“A stroll in the Jungle”
And last but not least: “Peacock’
If anyone wants to buy any of her piece, kindly do contact me.
For now our kitchen table is swamped with nothing but art supplies and Sairah’s art pieces and if you ask me, that’s a pretty good thing
