So when we started our art curriculum this year I fully intended on sticking with it until the end. But...we fizzled out of it. We chose a drawing course and we completed a few nice projects and learned some new techiniques like shading, texture, lines, etc. We also learned how to draw one point perspective:
Now that we don't have a curriculum to follow I was scrambling at the last minute to come up with an art project the other day. I did a quick search and found instructions and templates for making comics. It turned out to be a fun activity and Jared plans to continue making more.
In case you can't see it, it says:
Hi, my name is Jared.
This is pretty much what I do most of the day. (Kid laying in bed, relaxing)
(Running) Yep, you heard me, 'most of the day'. I said that because I'm homeschoo--
(Bang! Crashes into trashcan.) ...Uh...---schooled.
I found the templates and lots of other ideas at donnayoung.org and instructions and ideas for coming up with a story here. Or, if you do a search in Google you can find lots of ideas.
