The eyes of an artist see the world in a special way. They may be interested in the way the sun casts shadows on the morning grass or intrigued by the wide range of colors in a sunset. The scope of an artist eye can take many views. From a mountain top, an artist has an enormous view. Up close, an artist may zoom into an object to see a magnified detail. Artists can use their “Art Eyeglasses” to observe the tiny details of a common item usually gone unnoticed. The next time you are outside, explore with your Art Eyeglasses by picking up a seed pod, a branch or berries covered with snow. Let your eyes zoom in and look at the texture, the color variation, or the fascinating lines. You will discover a tiny world that few really take the time to see.
In today's Let's Make It!, learn how to put on your "Art Eyeglasses" and draw ZOOM art!
