Sarah the Super Artist

Check out his drawing made by Sarah Labanyi age 7. Sarah and her sister Ruthie are 7 days in to the daily drawing challenge and have been making some incredible art from the YouTube videos.   I’ll feature more soon. You guys are doing wonderful work. I’m so proud of you.

I’m so excited to see the artwork coming in from all my wonderful artists. You are turning my feed into an art gallery. Keep them coming. Sheila

_____________________________________________________________________ How to Draw ABC Animals is an initiative by artist and art teacher Sheila Flaherty in response to the school closures and COVID19 prevention social distancing. It aims to help parents have relaxing, enjoyable art activities for their mini Michelangelos to complete at home.
These art videos while initially requested by parents are being enjoyed by people of all ages. I realise so many of you are staying in to help curb the spread COVID19. Stay well and stay safe. Create don’t contaminate.
Sheila will post daily drawing videos. These videos are completely free of charge, free to use and share.

 

Drawing Tutorials and My New Art Adventure on YouTube

I have started a YouTube channel SheilaFlahertyArtist to share drawing tips and tricks. I’d love to know what you think? How can I improve and what kind of art videos would you like to see? Let me know in the comments under the video.

The 2 most asked questions I get about art are: 1. How long does it take to make a drawing? Different for every piece of art. In the one above about 50 minutes.

2. What art materials I use?  I’ll share the art materials I used for the drawing in the video of the silver bow below- and I use these few art products quite alot. They are among my favourite art supplies.

 These are the art materials I used in this drawing:

Online Art Classes to Help Make COVID19 Lockdown Easier

Requested by the parents of my lovely art students, I am making some online art tutorials. Share with those parents/guardians who need some activities while staying home.
What would you think about a different video each day? I can arrange a competition for those who have completed all the drawings? Maybe a prize for the best artists? What do you think?  https://youtu.be/D76CZ1lR3ag
