Young at Art: Owl Moon

Owl Moon by Jane Yolen is one of my favorite picture books.  The language is beautiful and the illustrations are stunning.  When I was choosing books for this month’s Young at Art classes, this one was a no-brainer for me.

It was a small class, just 8 painters, but it was quite lovely.  Most of the people were new to Young at Art so that was really exciting.  We talked a lot about blending colors when we were painting the snow and the light coming off of the moon.  We also talked about how to start with a familiar shape if you aren’t sure how to painting something.  (You might notice a Y in each of the trees.) It was fun to see how each painting turned out!

Here were some of the paintings…

This coming Saturday, January 28th, I am doing my second class of the month.  I haven’t quite decided what we are going to paint but I am reading another one of my favorite books!
