Art Every Day – Day 18

Posted by on Nov 18, 2011 in Art Every Day, Sewing | 2 comments

One of my favourite types of art, is art created by children.  Perhaps this is because I spend so much of my day with kids, or because I have spent so much time studying creativity and art in education, but perhaps it is just that their wonderful imaginations shine through their artwork, and it is truly amazing.

And one of my favourite things to do with children’s art is to bring their creations to life. 

What began as  Christmas gift for the students in my class a few years ago has now become part of my business.

And although it is often challenging, it never feels like work.

Today I had the pleasure of giving life to this awesome fire-breathing dinosaur:

I can almost hear his loud roar, can’t you?

  1. That’s so cool. I would love to teach art to kids one day. Love your work – I have a few old jumpers I am looking to do something with, so you’ve inspired me!

  2. I love these creatures you make and am incredibly impressed with the attention you pay to the little details in their drawings. My girls adore the ones you made them. :)
