This post features those 2 loves.
And then there's Miro who slaved for days sculpting, coating, and painting several penguin breeds he learned from the school library. When done, he propped them on a white sheet, took dozens of photos, and uploaded them to the mac. I saw him surfing for different scenic backgrounds, too. A little computerized snip, paste, and clean up later --and he's got the first few pages of his new book: THE TRAVELING PENGUIN.
My boys are multimedia (er, dualmedia) artists! Who would've guessed!
I'm proud of my boys for welding the 2 art forms together to create cohesive, imaginative wholes. Their fondness for old art and new art finally met. Of course, they haven't finished their big projects and are now bullying me to help them out --but it's a cool start.
With that, I call upon parents all over to expose your kids to every art form they can get their hands on. Kids are pretty poly-inventive. Chances are, they'll astound you.
