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.
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.
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.
