Artistic Endevours!

Frog - in progress by T Moore age 13 Acrylic

Hedgehog by C Moore age 10 - Acrylic

The children were lucky enough to have a few hours with their aunt at her art studio in The Hive (link below) and produced these paintings from their sketches. My daughters is complete,
my son's is a work in progress!

My little quick draw - having fun with figurative!

And here are a few other art happenings we have to share!

First these beautiful scarves were knit by the children as prizes
for their annual Christmas Fundraiser.

Each year they sell tickets for a dollar and send the money to the charity they have chosen - this year Plan Canada’s Gifts of Hope, providing global communities in need, with supplies for education, clean water, animals for milk and other basic requirements. The first few years the children painted and framed art work as prizes, last year they wrote a book. This year they knit. I forget which child came up with this idea several years ago, but I think it was after we attended an art fundraiser for the tsunami in south east Asia.
They have made this an annual tradition!

Every year the children put together our Advent wreath
at the Waldorf Christmas Fair!

Always plugging our many talented friends and relatives, this is a newspaper editorial, celebrating the recent open house at The Hive, the artist co-op that houses my sister-in-law's studio. Check out her blog and web site and leave a comment - she is new to blog land
- let's give her a warm welcome!

And now we go forth into Christmas Land to spread good cheer!
Have a Merry Weekend!

Many Thanks to our hostess with the mostest, Sunday Sketches with Sophia at BlueChairDiary! Visit more sketchers here!

Wishing you and yours
a Merry Christmas Season!
