As always these children amazed me with their enthusiasm and creativity at my FLOWERS AND BUTTERFLIES Art and Craft event at the North Beach branch of the San Francisco Public Library. Each child got a watercolor sheet of paper with a permanent pen line drawing. First we colored with CARAN D’ACHE water soluble pastels, then painted on water to mix up the colors. After that we stuck on anything and everything. This project had a separate butterfly that had to be cut out and stuck on. See my video about the FLOWERS AND BUTTERFLIES ART & CRAFT PROJECT below:
This is a photo of some of the TelHi students attending my FLOWERS AND BUTTERFLIES event at the North Beach branch of the San Francisco Public Library. I had a talented and enthusiastic bunch of children from different areas. I love it when the grandmas want to do their own project, too.
In this project we first colored the flowers and butterflies with CARAN D'ACHE water soluble pastels, then painted on water to mix up the colors. After that we stuck on anything which grabbed our fancy. Gems were in great demand!
I will be posting more images from this imaginative group of children.
TODAY is March 23rd—the day for ART WITH ELIZABETH at the San Francisco Public Library, North Beach Branch at 4:00 PM! We are doing a BUTTERFLIES AND FLOWERS ART & CRAFT PROJECT. You are all welcome to come and join us. The North Beach library is located at 850 Columbus Ave., San Francisco.
This is an image from one of my books, JASMINE AND BOO. In this story Jasmine and her imaginary cat friend Boo have moved and are trying to make friends. Jasmine has taken her irresistibly delicious muffins over to meet her neighbor. For once chocolate fails to produce its magic effect – he is clearly a mean bully and Boo is horrified!

My next Art With Elizabeth Art and Craft day at the North Beach Public Library is THIS THURSDAY, February 23rd at 4pm! The event features BUTTERFLIES AND FLOWERS and uses water soluble crayons, felt tip pens and an endless supply of fun things to stick on.
I think it is important to make art and craft projects as inspirational as possible, and I encourage children and their parents to be imaginative. The sky is the limit. See images of past craft events at the library on my Art & Craft Projects page.
