On Sunday my daughter and I had the pleasure of attending a Yoga and Art Workshop with Jill Caporlingua. You can see my post about a workshop Jill conducted last year. You sign up your child for the workshops with Jill, but if you are one of the parents who stay (and not all parents do), you can see the adults are having a wonderful time as well.
Jill showed the group a landscape by Vincent Van Gogh as an inspiration for the children to create their own landscapes. My daughter created a cityscape, and I plan to show it as my next “What Do You See” post. Then she said “and parents feel free to do your own.” I happily took a piece of paper and created the above scene. My daughter wanted to help out, and she added her own embellishments to the painting. I wonder if you can figure out what parts she contributed?

What a beautiful little piece! I am always happy when parents join in the fun.
Thanks for putting up the great pics.
p.s. I’m guessing one of your daughter’s touches is the red spot in the middle of the sun.
Yes, she added the red spot!
This looks like a geat workshop for both kids and parents.
Thanks. You can see the adult crawling for the pastels at the same time as my daughter has a look of enjoyment.
It doesn’t matter who did what, but that you took such a great workshop together. It is a really beautiful piece though..
My gut reaction was, no, you can’t touch my drawing. But then I let go. I see she actually enhanced it, because she was willing to let in colors and lines that I might have found too outlandish.
What a fun workshop. I love the yellow sky and jelly donut sun.

What a fun thing to do! It looks like everybody enjoyed it!
I love your art, you’re very talented!
PS: You have some great first signs of Spring in the previous posts!
What a wonderful way for children and parents to bond, and in a creative environment, too.
