The 4th of July is in only a couple of days, as of this blog post. We will have BBQ's and eat watermelon and set off fireworks to celebrate. We also think it would be super celebratory to do some patriot drawings with these kid artists.
Below are 3 drawing projects by kids and for anyone who wants to make some festive, patriotic art.

The overcast weather won't last forever in Portland, Oregon, so when then sun comes out and the days get warmer, why not show off more skin with henna body art?
You could paint your roommate's, kids', sister's or mom's hands, backs or legs with amazing henna art designs or you could do it to your own hand and legs as you'll see in the video below. Click on the image to watch the full video and how to create the intricate design pattern.
Of course, we always encourage you to be brave and make your designs own too. When you're done, you'll have a beautiful design which will last for a few days. It will give you plenty of time to show off in the summer sun.
If you don't have a henna body art kit at your home, you can get it from out website. Click on this link to see all the kits we offer you.
Usually, during the summer, we'd recommend going outside and doing some cool art projects like sidewalk chalk drawing or urban sketching. But we see in the forecast for Portland, Oregon, we're in for a few more days of overcast, cooler weather. What do we recommend during the less summery days of summer? When it feels a little colder than summer should be, it's a great idea to get out that bag of clay and do some fun sculpture projects like a clay dragon!
In the video below, Trista the artist shows you step-by-step how to make a clay dragon. It's a fun way to take advantage of cooler weather and gray skies. Your clay won't dry as quickly as on a hot, sunny day, giving you more time to sculpt as carefully as you need to.
Of course, we wouldn't leave you hanging if you don't have a big bag of clay at your home. You can get a full clay art kit, including tools and the clay on our website. Click this link to be brought to the full clay kit.
