MommyMaestra Summer of Fun: Continuous Line Art
Time for a new summer learning activity! This summer, los abuelos have been traveling to Europe. Each day, we excitedly opened my email looking for new photos and news from England and Scotland. One particular set of photos caught our eye and provided us with inspiration for a simple activity. In their flat, los abuelos had a series of prints on the wall of these continuous line drawings:
Convinced it would be super easy to recreate similar artwork, my kids ran and grabbed some paper and pencils. But it was a lot harder than they thought!
The goal of continuous line art is to not pick up your pencil until the drawing is complete. And it is even harder if you don't allow yourself to go back over the same lines. My kids cheated a bit this time around and went back over some of their lines, but they promised that next time they wouldn't!
You can make it as simple or as hard as you want. The great thing is that you can draw anything...including Jabba the Hutt. :)
Can your kids do this?
