A couple of months ago during one of our sleepovers I was putting Amara to bed and we were just chatting. She told me she was getting very good at using paint.net on her computer. She knows of my love of Photoshop so I love hearing about what she is learning to use. She’s also been learning GIMP! I told her that I would love it if she would show me some of what she is learning online. I love that she not only spends her Saturday afternoons at art class using brushes and paints but is also becoming very adept at using a mouse and stylus to create electronic art.
The next morning after we finished making more of our awesome pancakes Amara took her chalk outside and started drawing. It came out beautiful but it was too windy outside and headed for the computer. Amara remembered that I wanted her to show me paint.net. She had to create a painting to show me how it really worked and so “Lady” was created. My very own My Little Pony Persona! It was so fun as she explained all the tools and how to use them.
What a great way to spend the morning!
