Christmas Cars!

This idea, from Deep Space Sparkle, is a perfect introduction to illustration art. The artwork is not intended to be realistic or painterly, but more like an illustration in a children's book.                                                      Kids often try so hard to make things look 'real,' especially middle schoolers and up. This project offers a great opportunity for them to loosen up and draw something a bit less perfect, even cartoonish and silly, while illustrating a rather quaint and old fashioned subject. 

The kids (ages 10 to 15) were a bit hesitant about it at first, but loved the Christmas Car once we got going! Corban (our only male artist) painted Christmas Humvee driven by Slenderman in a potato storm. 

Well, alrighty then!
