Virtual Refrigerator: First Snow

Welcome to another edition of the Virtual Refrigerator! This weekly blog hop is co-hosted by A Glimpse of Our LifeAngels of HeartHomeschool Coffee Break, and Every Bed of Roses. We all cordially invite you to add your link sharing the art that's on your Virtual Refrigerator and then hop over to the other blogs and admire what's on their Fridges! 
October's Art Challenge: Autumn Leaves
The hosts of the Virtual Refrigerator put our heads together and decided to give a themed challenge to each other and to our readers each month. For October, the theme is Autumn Leaves, and there is one week left to link up and pin your artwork that features autumn leaves in some way. We'll be featuring themed submissions to the Fridge as we go along. Please continue to share any art posts on our Virtual Fridge as well - we love seeing all of them! - and we hope the theme provides a little additional challenge and inspiration!

November's Art Challenge: Thanksgiving
If you're thinking ahead, we will be looking for Thanksgiving themed art during the month of November!

Kennady's featured artwork this week is a snow scene. No,we haven't had snow yet this year, and we hope we won't for at least another month or so, but we have had frost. She created this scene completely on her own - not an assignment, and not from a book. She claimed she had "nothing to do" one day, so I suggested she look through her art instruction books for a project. She told me that instead she had just thought up a subject on her own and figured out how to make it look the way she wanted.

Kennady chose a light gray chalk pastel paper to provide the overcast sky background, then finger blended the darker gray and the white for her clouds and snow cover. Some green blades of grass are still visible as the snow continues to fall and is starting to settle on the bare tree. I love it - it's bleak but rather peaceful at the same time.

You can grab the button above and add it to your post. Add your link here to share your child's art or your arts and crafts how-to posts. Please visit the other blogs and admire what's on their Virtual Refrigerators!

You may also follow the Virtual Refrigerator's group Pinterest board. If you'd like to join us, just ask and one of the Fridge hosts can send you an invite. Continue to share your posts on the link-up each week, and on the Pinterest board!

That is peaceful looking. My kids dream of playing in such soft snow.
