I hope everyone had a good time visiting the MOMA interactive online art gallery on Day 1. There are a lot of fun things to do while viewing the animated version of the MOMA art gallery in New York City. Also I hope you will draw your self portrait (a picture of yourself) and post it so we can all see each others work.
For day 2, we are going to read a book and draw a character from the book. One of my favorite books is Where The Wild Things Are, by Maurice Sendak. You may have read it before, but if you haven’t you can watch this video:
Can you draw one of the monsters in the book or what you think a monster looks like? I have posted above an illustration of a monster that I drew for my book, Roland’s Stupendous Imagination And The Native Americans. If you can draw it on colored paper it would be great, but if not white is OK. Remember to post your picture here.
The club will continue through July 31. Five days a week there will be an activity and all those that participate can upload photos to my author illustrator page on FaceBook. Participation can be random or on a regular basis, but prizes will be awarded for the top five participants with the most photos of their weekly projects uploaded to my FaceBook page. The prizes will be $25.00 gift cards to Michael’s Arts and Craft Stores. Prizes will be announced on August 7 and mailed immediately. I also will offer other reviews of books and apps for children through the summer here on my blog. Be sure to bookmark this page for the links and sign up for my mailing list. If you have any questions please post them as a comment to this blog. Please share this blog and info and get ready to have some fun!
