September's Art Challenge: Artist Studies
A Glimpse of Our Life has been featuring the artist Eric Carle this month. Keep an eye out for more studies to follow! Leave a link on our Virtual Fridge to your own artist study or art how-to post, or to the art projects you and your kids have created in your homeschool.

So this is something Kennady doodled up this week. I didn't catch the significance of it (except that 42 is the answer to the universe) so she had to explain to me that it's the "lucky numbers" from Lost. Clearly I am missing out by not watching.

At any rate, I like her presentation, and it reminded me of an artist study that I had bookmarked a couple weeks ago thinking she would be interested. She was busy with other schoolwork this week, so we just took a look at the blog I found it on, and I printed out the instructions for her to try the project. So, here's a quick preview of what we might have on the Fridge next week!

I found an art lesson on precisionism and typography based on the art of Charles Demuth on the blog Create Art With Me. It's inspired by this example of Demuth's artwork, I Saw the Figure 5 in Gold. Demuth was a watercolorist who developed the art movement known as Precisionism.
