Blind Contour Fridays - We're the featured Artists
We were both thrilled and happy to be asked.
With all the kind responses and followers my son receives at his blog http://www.mixupfun.blogspot.com/ and then being asked to be the featured artist he had to ask this morning, "Am I famous?"
Benjamin has Asperger's Syndrome and found by Grade 4 the public school system far too stressful. When I began homeschooling him I couldn't say the word school and I couldn't teach him in a formal school style. So I began just doing art with him and from there snuck learning into the art sessions. (flour dough mixtures to make North America and then paint it in, 3 dimensional models of the solar system, things like that) When I started Blind Contour Drawings as part of a course I was taking, Benjamin was very intrigued and wanted to do them as well. So we started doing them together. When Peggy started Blind Contour Friday we made it part of our schedule. We look forward to ending the week of school with the blind contours. Thank you Peggy
