Sketchbook Project

Have you heard of The Sketchbook Project? One purchases a sketchbook (deadline was November 15), recieves sketchbook, fills sketchbook with any medium that will fit, then returns sketchbook. These sketchbooks will then be part of a traveling exhibit, the sketchbooks have barcodes on them so the artist will be able to track it. We thought this idea was so awesome that we purchased one for our 3 1/2 year old daughter!

Now I realize that she is not a child prodigy with exceptional art skills, but we thought this would be a neat way to catalog her little drawings. Lately, she has been doodling at night, and I love how random lines, dots, and messy circles make up a dinosaur, a roach, a car, her baby brother, etc... I am still thinking of ways to describe what she drew, I think what I will do is just ask her what her finished drawing is and simply write it at the bottom of the page. I'm excited to see what come of this!!!!
