Mary and the Flight to Egypt by C Moore age 10

We are making the class card for Grade 5.
This is my daughter's wonderful sketch for that card.

The following fabulous sketches are guest artists
age 9 and 10 for the same card!

I love the whimsy a child brings to their art,
as an adult it is hard to mimic!

Red Candle age 10

Nativity age 10

Advent age 10

I have just finished putting together this Advent wreath made by the families of grade 5. Each envelope has an advent poem, prayer or message - one is to be opened and read each day.

Happy Advent - 26 Days to Christmas,
But really, who's counting?! Yikes!!

Please do visit the other artists and their sketches at BlueChairDiary

  5. Hi! The advent wreath is a wonderful idea. I love it. and you are so right, there is something about the whimsy of a child's artwork, that i just adore too...i do love seeing all of the artwork by kids, it's just so real. they would all be sweet cards, too.

  7. It's an interesting thought about a child's whimsical drawings. Yes, they are so hard to mimic as we grow older, but such fun to do them!! Your daughter's picture of Mary is so lovely - what a special card it will make.

  8. Wow and you are right. The childs hand has a n innocence and yet such maturity that many an artist tried to copy throught the ages
