I just came across this photo of a rainbow house that I drew when I was four. The segmentation and the assortment of colors reminded me of Maia's House of Color (one of my all-time favorites of hers). It's interesting to see the parallels in our artwork.
Here's a post with a few more of my childhood drawings.
I loved to draw and paint as a child. I didn't have access to the sheer variety of art supplies that my daughters take for granted, though. No glitter glue, washi tape, or crayon rocks. No twenty kinds of paint.
But I happily created with the basic materials we had in our house—crayons, Cray-Pas, markers, paint, and paper. I had everything I needed. A full imagination, time and freedom to create, and a few simple materials.
How about you? What art materials did you use when you were growing up? Any favorite childhood art memories?
