Fine Arts Friday: Mary Kate's Creations

What I love about doing art with the kids is that they will stay quietly content and productively occupied for hours. I no longer fret about getting the paints out anymore. They're old enough to know where everything is and how to set it up. These days, instead of having to give the kids ideas and directing them how to start a particular project, they just take off with their own ideas and later present me with things like this.Toucan created after reading through the book Henri Matisse: Drawing with Scissors.

A watercolor piece she called, Lady from India.

As you can see, Mary Kate prefers using bold colors to make a statement. Her artwork makes me smile!

Love the bold, Mary Kate! I'm not surprised that she is into making a statement. Wasn't she the one that painted the town with nail polish?

Again thanks for sharing! That is good for a young child. I am liking the idea that our kids are getting old enough to do things on their own.

Whoa! She is quite an artiste! I know you are artistic as well, based on your cakes. Is your husband artsy, too?
