Sketching With My Grandkids

My grandchildren like to sketch, and some of them are quite good.  Unfortunately, they don't live near me, so our opportunities for sketching together are limited to occasional visits.  So I decided to try a virtual sketch challenge.  Our first subject was animals.  They didn't have to be real.  I did one of my stuffed bears, and Brandon and Matt followed my lead.
My "Kiss Kiss Bear"

Matt's "Vincent" a Beanie zebra

And Brandon's stuffed bald eagle from scout camp

This was fun, and I hope we can continue it, and perhaps even get more of the grandchildren interested in participating.  Our next subject is "buildings".  I can't wait so see what the kids do this time.  Maybe if this project takes off, it can get a blog of its own.


  1. I think this is such a great way to share your love of art with the kids. It would be fun to see some of David's kids take part too.

  2. I think some of them are working on sketches too.
