This activity is transpired by our previous art sesh where our little artist Andrei pitched the idea of cartoon cut-outs. Good idea, kid. *clap *clap
In this post, I will show my nephew Yuan doing more cut-outs (he goes home from school earlier, that’s why). He borrowed Andrei’s cut-out as a template. I can truly feel this kid’s inclination to illustration. By himself, he starts tracing and he knows what to do. Although afterwards, he pushes the marker suggesting I continue the drawing (he got frustrated when he thinks his copy is not as good) but I rejected saying it’s best if he be the one to complete his artwork. Instead I gave a little guide/demonstration (showing him proper strokes and some tips on detail observation since he’s copying a model) and assured him he is doing the right way.
The beautiful result is this:
Wow!!! Good job, Yuan! Now, you know how to draw your favorite cartoon! I told my nephew. He was so delighted, he created more! Yeepee! 😀
Just when I thought it’s a wrap….we are not over yet. Someone’s lucky to make it to the day’s art sesh.
And I almost forgot, all I did in this art sesh was to cut out. That’all. And a bit of teaching. I I discovered kids learn so fast especially when they like what they’re doing and are also independent. But not with the scissors, I never let them (for now).
Hmmm What should we do next? better ask the kids… 🙂
