Our family has been so blessed with pastels instruction from the tutorials at Hodgepodge. This week the younger boys read Pete The Cat and his Four Groovy Buttons. It was written to be a read-aloud for a much younger audience, but it is cute and the younger boys could read it themselves, and it lends itself to a fun art session with its simple and yet engaging illustrations.
Following the inspiration at Hodgepodge, we sat around the table and Katie helped the little boys draw pictures of Pete. We used beeswax crayons this time instead of pastels simply because we couldn't find the pastels. I think the beeswax crayons worked out well, I think.
