My Artistic Children

A continuous inspiration to me are my kids. I've tried to encourage their artistic interests without pushing too much. I show them some techniques but I mostly let them explore. What they come up with just playing around amazes me. I pretty much find myself saying "Why didn't I think of that?"


Some of Caitlyn's work. She's 3 1/2. She loves painting next to me.


The animal above was a collaborative effort between Caitlyn and me.

Below is my son Evan's work. He'll be 5 in a few weeks. He likes to draw funny characters.



The above bunnies were also a collaborative effort. Evan did the paint streaks and I thought they looked like two bunnies embracing.

It's so much fun creating with my kids. They aren't critical. They just create and when they are done, they're done. It's wonderful!

  1. I love these creations! I still love looking back at my daughter's younger art and I just melt. Did you know there is a site that can take your child's drawing and make it into a stuffed animal/person? I found it on Pinterest I believe.
