I didn't have anything particular in mind when I created this image. In fact I didn't know what I wanted to create, so I set out to create a scribble drawing. To do this activity you take a piece of paper and pencil, place the pencil on the paper and without lifting the pencil create a continual line/scribble all over the paper. Sometimes it's best to close your eyes when you do the scribble part. Then you turn the paper over and over, looking at it from all different angles until you start to see an image within the lines of the scribble. You then take those lines and create your image. You can color it in using any art medium (colored pencils, markers, paint, watercolors).
I realized after creating mine that prior to creating I had been talking with others about my recent trip over Easter weekend to visit my family and celebrate my nephew's 5th birthday. There's magic in the scribble drawing because it's neat to see what comes out of it. I think unconsciously I had continued to think about this great family visit and perhaps made myself see a bunny in the image.
This activity is great for any age. It would make a good classroom, family, friends get together art party, etc... activity. I would say it is good for ages 7/8 on up. It's neat to see what everyone comes up with and it really allows each person to use their imagination.
