Art Box/Abstract Art

Yesterday, Selena informed me that she wanted to do an abstract art project. I asked her what an abstract art project was, and she said “I don’t know.” That seems to be her answer for all our questions anymore.

I brought out her bucket of art supplies where we have colored pencils, markers, and her stampers. We discussed how Abstract art is simply lines, shapes and colors done anywhere on the page she wants it to be. I then began to make my version of an abstract just to get her started.

Selena got very interested. She first drew a self portrait then started her abstract around that.
