In May of 2008, Gideon decided he wanted to teach the kids online how to draw.  Such an ambitious desire for someone five years old. Of course I was ready with the camera to film his art instruction. Here’s a index of all of his videos, and it will be updated in the event that he decides to teach art some more in the future.

Gideon’s Latest Art: He’s Discovered PSP!

As many of you know Gideon has quite the art streak in him at times. He even has his own (Real and working) laptop that he uses to paint pictures on. He draws, colors and does a miriad of artsy things.

Gideon noticed one day while perched upon my lap that mommy’s “puter” has a paint program too (Paint Shop Pro) he asked if he could paint on my puter and I agreed. I opened up him a new document painted the background white and opened the tubes for him. I figured these would fascinate him and he could explore a new avenue in his art.

Boy, did he ever explore! He made picture after picture, and days later, he is still making pictures. It would appear that Gideon appreciates all forms of art – even computer generated. )

Here’s a bunch of his latest creations: (You should be able to view the full files with this article)

Gideon’s Latest Art

September 25, 2008 at 5:34 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , )

Tonight Gideon picked up the small notebook I’d set aside for him to draw on in the car and other times away from home. He rarely uses it, but it’s really no trouble at all to tote it along for those times when he might feel inclined to draw.

He found it on the floor by his Cars chair and asked if he could draw. I, naturally said of course and off he went. He was very intent on what he was creating. Then I heard a rip and over he came paper in hand.

What he had given me was a picture of Spongebob.

I took it commented on how wonderful the drawing was and he ran back to his pad making another one. Once again he tore it our and ran over to me. He’d made a snake this time.

Then he went to make a screw.

Off he went again to make another drawing.  A couple crayons this time.

And again he went off again. Then a pepperoni pizza.

A button.

And most notably a bird.

He wrote the word “bee”

Here’s a couple he did the other night.

Water.

And a caterpillar.

It seems that Gideon’s been bit by the drawing bug, and I just love that he’s back to creating beautiful drawings!

Back when I was writing for Associated Content, I did this craft with Gideon. He just adored it!

They are so easy to make and they do look pretty cute when done. This was sold as an exclusive to the site, so I’m not able to post it here. You can, however click the link to read how you and your children can make them.

Here’s the completed project images:

My felt picture – hand sewn.

Here’s the two that Gideon made.

A picture Gideon just colored in his Hello Kitty coloring book today. He did a wonderful job of staying within the lines and did a lot of detailling on the fish’s fins. 🙂
