As a toddler, one of the best feelings was having your parents praise your artwork and hang it on the fridge door. The only thing better than parental approval was parental participation. Making art projects with parents is just the tops.
Ruth Oosterman has taken parental participation to a whole new level.
Oosterman has her 2-year old daughter make rough sketches with a felt tip pen all over a canvas. Using her imagination, Oosterman then takes the rough, abstract scribbles and turns them in concrete, delicately detailed images.
It looks like it takes a great deal of effort. Oosterman says it’s important not to overthink it and just go with what comes to mind immediately. She often documents her process on her YouTube channel. Check out an example in the video below!
