Art Lessons began today

Tuesday, January 8, 2008 at 3:35 PM
Annie began her first art lesson with me today.  We 'worked' for about an hour learning about shapes and contour lines in drawing.  When finished she took up her new terracota pencil and did a sketch of me knitting!  You can see it here at her blog:  Annie's Adventures with Nina.

While she drew me I did a quick sketch of  a 5 lb weight that we'd used as a subject for one of our contour drawings.

5 lb weight
