Friends have really enjoyed using liquid watercolors with oil pastels and colored tape this week! It has given me many ideas for upcoming projects and I am so excited to get some of them underway. Below is a conversation between myself and Braeden about his future career goals and his painting titled “Snoopy and the Pilot!”
Braeden: Now I need another color to draw in the little triangle. It’s part of the airplane wing. Look Ms.Cushner, you just swipe the brush so we don’t waste the paint. You’re the best artist in the whole world. You know everything in the whole world.
Ms.Cushner: Wow, Braeden… thank you! I think you’re a fabulous artist too, and you always take such good care of our materials.
Braeden: It’s because I went to the store, the art store, with my family. I actually think I’m gonna be the best artist when I grow up. I got some paints and papers from the art store with my dad so I can practice.
Ms.Cushner: Do you want to be an art teacher or an artist?
Braeden: Not a teacher, just an artist. I’m practicing to be one now! See, this is still an airplane… a Snoopy airplane! Snoopy the Pilot… it’s kind of funny!
