Semi-Slacker Art

My BF, Helene at I'm Living Proof That God Has a Sense of Humor along with 3 Bay B Chicks & Domestically Challenged have joined together to celebrate art and being creative. Together, they are sponsoring an event called "We Heart Art" this week only, which gives you the chance to not only showcase your artwork or creative projects, but also your kid's handiwork. You can read the kick-off post here. Prizes for children and adults will be awarded to a few lucky winners selected at random.

The Semi-Slacker kids love art! Lately they have been showcasing their talents by painting flower pots (& the driveway) & sidewalk chalk(ing the porch)! Whatever their medium of choice, you can guarantee they will get some of it on themselves!

Sassy is a wonderful photographer. And with the help of her gifted art teacher she has created some beautiful things.

Bo is a talented vocalist. His real talent is architecture.

And Baby Girl, oh Baby Girl, if it was paint I would say Jackson Pollack but you decide...

That's NOT paper! It's her bedroom wall.
She was suppose to be sleeping!

Downstairs playroom.
I must have been blogging.

Seriously, our favorite thing to do when our creative juices start flowing, is take a trip to "the pottery painting place". While I love for them to make a mess, I mean be creative at my house, it's even funner if someone else has to do the work!

Here's a sampling of the children's creations.

This is one of my favorite pieces. It's even dishwasher safe!

A family effort!

We have big plans for a CREATIVE summer! And I will be checking out all the other We Heart Art posts for some great ideas.


I draw the line at Play-Doh.

Love the art work. I have had some of the same on my walls and even my kitchen table. I learned just this week that I need to draw the line at play doh, too. No more of that stuff in my house!

Sandra said...

Totally agree on the PlayDoh - and how, might I ask, did we remove my Baby's paintings from the wall? Did Retro cut out that piece of the sheet rock and frame it so as not to disturb her creations?? xoxo

I love baby girl's wall the best. So sweet. My girls love the pottery place too. I like the platter with their hands. You are so creative!

KK said...

I seriously love those platters!

super cute I am going to play along as well!

Missy said...

Aw I love Play Doh! Love it more now because I have no carpet. If I had a dime for every not on paper art my kids have created for me I would be a rich woman.

1~ She really got that wall, didn't she!? Nice work! My son would be impressed. As a 2 year old wall artist, he has never gotten quite that elaborate, but give him time....
2~ The pottery is fantastic. I have been promising my oldest I would take him to pottery shop, and seeing this made me eager to do so. Thanks for sharing!
3~ I see that you have a pet turtle? Awesome! So do we!
4~ Yes, I always use way to may exclamation marks! Sorry!

We had to nip the wall art in the bud by leaving plenty of paper in my daughter's bedroom.

*squeel!* I really love their pottery!

BonBon Rose Girls Kristin said...

I see everyone's little kid art on their blogs and I just can't wait until my little dude is old enough!

Jennifer said...

FANTASTIC stuff! Love the plates -- and of course, the wall art just takes the cake!

Congrats on winning!
