Sunriver Landscapes

Family Reunion art bannerFamily reunion with lots of kids?  Make art!

At our recent 48-people family celebration, we made art on the porch of our rented Circle 4 Cabin in Sunriver, Oregon.  What a perfect setting!  And a fun, downtime activity for the 15 kids in our group, ages 5-16.

For our first lesson, I adapted “Cool and Modern Landscapes in Chalk” from Deep Space Sparkle.

SuppliesWe used 12×18  black paper, black oil pastels and Sargent Art Square Chalk Pastels.  Afterwards, I sprayed the pieces with hairspray and covered them with newsprint.  I haven’t tried it yet, but I read that it’s possible to laminate chalk pastel pieces with no ill-effects.  My daughter’s piece will make a terrific momento of our trip.

Inspiration
Most of us replicated our family reunion logo, designed by my aunt and uncle.  I also displayed prints and postcards by Northwest artists Paul A. Langquist and Susan Luckey Higdon, which I purchased at a local gift shop.
