We actually have been doing art from that art site that I found a few weeks ago. I am pretty impressed with that art blog and I am also pretty (um...actually VERY) impressed that we have followed through with doing it. I find that we are always disciplined to get the 3 Rs done for school. No problem there. It is easy to drop the extras. And sure enough, it is the extra things that my kids love the most.
The best way for me to remember to follow through with doing these artsy projects is to save them as my background on my computer and then it is right there, staring me in the face as a "friendly reminder". And as a reference when we are ready to draw them. When there is a project we want to do, I click on the picture to make it larger then right click to save as background. I did order some pastels for the last of our supplies. A year ago I took my weekly coupon to the art store and picked up some basics to have on hand for when the moment strikes.
We use a flattened out cardboard box as our safe surface to paint on. SO much easier than newspaper. When we are done, you can even hide it behind the couch for next time.
