Today is Mother's Day and Mom and I scanned in my work from last week. I call these drawings:
Sponge Bob Squarepants and friends
Three Musicians playing while their buttons burst, strings pop and glasses break.
Pery the Platypus
On Saturday I went with my friend Alessandra who is an artist like me to the Timken Art Museum in Balboa Park. Together we drew the work of great painters. I learned that it's a good idea to try to copy the work of artists in museums when you are learning to draw.
In 4th grade we are studying Alexander Calder who is amazing. Here I am drawing his work at the gallery in Washington D.C. Today I created a movie about him for Art Night at my school and did you know he made a circus with cork, scraps of wood and paper, wire, buttons and a pair of pliers? He carried it back and forth in these cool suitcases from Paris to New York. I made these drawings of his mobiles and wire sculptures.
