Video Art Lesson: Goldendoodle 04/29/20
Whoozapuppy??! Goldendoodles are wonderful, sweet pups who often donate their time as therapy dogs. On today’s episode, fine artist, Elana Amity, shows how to draw this animal in a realistic way.
Our West Coast superstar animator, cartoonist, and illustrator volunteers have just created a new coloring book for the Ink Well kids! These books will get sent out to children dealing with illness and hardship in hospitals and foster care centers across the country. It’s vitally important that we maintain close connections with these kids, providing encouraging, stimulating activities to fight isolation and to keep growing in health and hope. Thank you, volunteers, for making this possible!

In this “toon-ify” coloring book, our artists depict a realistic object, animal, or person then show how to transform it into a cartoon. The kids get to create their own cartoon version then color the whole thing in! This is just one of many remote activities we’re doing to keep our collaboration with children in health and foster care support going strong during these particularly isolating times. 💪

From her apartment in New York City, Elana Amity shows how to draw a classic New York squirrel! We’re sending videos, coloring books, and other encouraging activities like this to children in hospitals and foster care centers coast to coast to keep our community connection strong for children facing illness and hardship.
