As you know we love art, and love to get messy with it. I'm all for playdough, paints, modeling clay, pastels, you name it. But we've also discovered some great non-messy interactive art sites.
Sketchfu is a fabulous little "paint"-like program that allows you to replay your work, and watch it develop. It's like time-lapse photography for art! You can see my last little bit of "painting" in the previous post. Wish I'd seen the option for the eyedropper and opacity tools! Would have made the work easier.
Drawing with a mouse is tough, guys. Maybe I'll get an iMac someday... a girl can dream.
Then there's Albright Knox Online Art Games, Bomomo, Jackson Pollock (hint: every time you click, the color will change), Planet Perplex (a lot of neat things like this, but I'd advise that you browse through first,)and Walker Art Center has interactive lessons and games, by grade. Plus so many others. If you occasionally need a less-messy art time, don't overlook the computer!
