Friday Art: One Line Drawings

     Swiss artist Paul Klee once said, "Drawing is like taking a line for a walk."  That's exactly what my boys experienced last Friday using this continuous-drawing technique.  The whole idea for this art project came from Family Fun Magazine.  I get so many great ideas from there.  When I told B & B they were to draw a picture (of whatever they wanted) without lifting their pen, they said, "Really? No way!".  They found out it was easier than first anticipated, and we were all so excited with the results! 

Using a black pen to draw the picture, because later we will use watercolors to fill in.

Inspired to draw birds.

Almost done with the drawing part...

Now filling in with watercolors.

Finished product...inspired by an Aesop Fable
Well worth the time and effort!
