Family Art Time

Family Art Day
Spending time as a family, is so very important in these busy times we live in. Art is a creative outlet that my wife and I have always tried to encourage in our children. Over the years the kids have developed a love for creating and producing various forms of art. Sometimes we'll sit down as a family and draw a still life set up. Its really fun to see the same objects drawn from a different perspective. When we finish our drawings we all share what we've done. I think it is a great way for a family to stay close.
This picture is something I drew in my sketchbook.


My wife liked it so much that she suggested we scan and print a copy for all of our family to colour.
heres my sons...

here's my daughters...

Here's my wife Carmelinas...


and here's mine...

We had alot of fun sitting around the table, talking and colouring.
You should try it with your family too!
You might be surprised by how much fun you can have.
Bye for now!

I love to hear about families such as yours. You are on the right track and your kids will never forget the times you have created especially for them. Congratulations!

HI TERRY,
VERY GOOD IDEA FOR A FAMILY TO GET TOGETHER. THERE ARE FAMILIES TODAY THAT DON'T EVEN EAT TOGETHER, I WAS BROUGHT UP TO EAT TOGETHER, AND GATHER AROUND THE KITCHEN TABLE AND TALK, THEY WERE GREAT TIMES. NOW I HAVE MY GRANDCHILDREN AROUND ME, AND THEY WERE BROUGHT UP TO SIT AROUND THE KITCHEN TABLE TOO. THE DRAWINGS AND COLORING ARE JUST GREAT, AND EVERYONE DOES THEIR OWN THING. RIZZI

What a great idea. I copied a sketch or two for one or the other of my children but never for the whole family to do together. You guys are awesome!! I love all the different looks of the same drawing!

The colours are so rich and smooth.
I had fun that day colouring with you at the table.

I loved the sketch the minute I saw it and then everone's color - fabulous. Your children certainly have their parent's talent. You are so blessed to be able to share your creativity with each other in this way. What would happen if all families shared this type of time together instead of in front of a TV or video game? Might just be a better world.

What a fantastic idea and I like every version! I kind of like the half pencil, half color ...very cool but your finished product is great too.
