Check out these incredible masterpieces. Christopher attended the Art Academy Summer camp 2019 and wowed everyone with his artistic talent. It soon became clear that there was more than one artist in the family. He and his mom Joanna created extra Rosa Bonheur mastercopies at home and kindly shared their beautiful work featured below. Well done to this awesome, creative mom and son art team.
If you would like to draw a lion, watch the video above and draw with me. It took me 3 minutes to draw the outline in marker.
TOP TIP: I like to draw the outline first in pencil. That way if I make a mistake, I can simply erase it. When I have all of the out lines drawn in pencil, then I take a black marker and go over these lines. Afterwards I take my time and enjoy colouring in my artwork. I hope you enjoy drawing this lion too. Which animal would you like to draw next?
Some of you know this from Art Academy’s Summer camp
but for others: Did you know the famous french artist Rosa Bonheur learned the alphabet as a child by drawing an animal for each letter of the alphabet? One of her many favourite animals to draw and paint were lions. What is your favourite animal to draw?

Some of you are aware of my secret project Da Vinci box I’ve been putting together behind the scenes. Here is a sneak peek at a speed drawing
If you’d like a peek inside Da Vinci Box, take a little look here.
If you’d like to see how this lightbulb was drawn check us out on Youtube:

I’ll keep you updated on this project. I’m very excited to share more soon.
How are you? I’ve been playing about with stop motion video editing and I’m excited to share something I’ve enjoyed making. If you’d like to watch a video tutorial on how to draw the cute Daisy below click here
Disney’s The Lion King remake is in cinemas at the moment. From monkeys to lions, the Art Academy artists have painted them all.
We are off to a very colourful start here at this week’s Art Academy Summer Camp as we welcome 12 promising artist’s to their week of Rosa Bonheur painting. Stay tuned to see their work progess. I am very excited to see what these guys can do as so far, I’m impressed with their work ethic and colour mixing skill.
Phew, it’s just a bunch of 7 and 8 year olds making their block-ins, ahead of creating their Mastercopies of 19th Century realism art. The painting’s are starting to look so real you would be forgiven for thinking these were real lions.
The artists are studying the work of world famous artist Rosa Bonheur. Rosa Bonheur
was a french artist and her largest and most famous work can be seen in New York’s wonderful Met Museum
. We do however have one of her paintings here in Ireland, a beautiful painting of a stag (the animal not the pre-wedding weekend away): https://www.theartstory.org/artist-bonheur-rosa-life-and-legacy.htm
