Life Size Painting of My Four Year Old

Today Aaron and I went to an Art Workshop at the school. It's the "half term" holidays, so it felt funny going into school, but off we went. I am so very glad that we did. In involved an early start but was so so very worth it.

At first the adults were on one table drawing and brainstorming, with pencils. The children were at another table with marker pens. We then had lunch, all together.

Then after that, out came THE PAINT. Once I saw these large sheets of paper, I had the idea of drawing around Aaron:

Aaron did all of the painting with me. I didn't realise that he's now so good at staying within the lines. He chose the colours too!
Aaron had markers in his hands when I drew around him, so as above, I decided to call it an "Artistic Warrior!" So very proud of our work today. We both got so so much out of it.

This half-term holiday break has been amazing thus far!
The next day, at the second and final day of the Art Workshop, the painting was dry so we got to pose with it for a photo. Proud Mamma!

  1. That is brilliant. What are you going to do with it now?

    1. I think it is to go up on the wall at school, but hopefully when the wall gets rotated or refreshed we get to take it home. I have the perfect wall for it. xx

  2. That's amazing! I love his pose too! X

    1. Thank you. I don't think I've had that much fun in years. Made me realise I need to be arty again as I so so so used to be. xx


Drop me a line, and I will visit you right back - as soon as I get chance. Thanks for your comment.
