Our inspiration in this Drawing and Painting studio comes from the Brooklyn Illustrator, Daniel Salmieri who illustrated NY Times best seller, Those Darn Squirrels which is a clever book about a backyard quarrel between squirrels and birds.
Little Artists studied different bird features and drew 3-4 tall cartoon birds onto their canvas with black ink and then painted the full canvas with watercolor paints. Artists had fun mixing bright colors, splattering, salt sprinkles and dripping rubbing alcohol.
Once the background was dry artists had the choice to use acrylic or watercolor paint to finish the birds bodies and add details.
See You at the Next Studio!
