Encouraging Parent Led Education
Art for the Young (or Young at Art)
By Deborah Klose
This ferret was done by a teenage boy, year before last. It is done entirely with professional grade Prismacolor pencils. The students had all voted to do a black footed ferret. I am grateful for their idea for they all turned out great. The contrast is stunning.
Izzy, 6 years old, painted this for Mother’s Day. Her older sister did one with a turquoise door. The initial “M" in the wrought iron railing is for Mom.
Amelia ,6, did this for her first lesson. There are so many tips to pick up, for any age, by doing a simple tulip.
The word epiphany originally meant to glimpse who God is, in His creation of the people and world around us. Whether the face of a child, the weathering of the aged, grapes on a vine, flowers on the sill, a lion facing the wind…, fine art should glorify God.
I have been teaching art to all ages for 29 years, working with home schools, private and public schools, classes in my home studio, and the fun adventure of co-teaching writing and illustration camps. My credentials are: I enjoy art, love children, and delight in seeing their efforts bloom into a lifetime ability.
