A good drawing week

Today is Mother's Day and Mom and I scanned in my work from last week. I call these drawings:
Tin Tin
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.

Alexander "Sandy" Calder on my mind

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.

Here's a drawing I made that I'm starting to paint with watercolor of the Lorax.
