My Summer Artwork


Welcome back to school and to Chloe's Creative Corner! 

Over the summer, I really enjoyed  painting in the outdoors.  I also enjoyed sketching and drawing with pastels.

I love art! I am passionate about it because it helps me develop my own personality. It also helps me create memories and record my talents.

Here is a video I made to share some of my artwork from this summer with you:

I'm planning to have an art exhibit soon and to sell some of my artwork to raise money for the Talbert Family Foundation.  This is a great way to bring my passions for art and charity together.  I love the Talbert Family Foundation because they are so caring and they give 100% of the donations to local families in need.

Do you like art?

                                              What are you passionate about?
                                                        
                                               What is your favorite charity?

  1. Dear Chloe,

    I saw your video it was phenomenal.
    I just love how each picture tells its own story.
    I am a fan of cartoon art .

    As you know my passion is gymnastics
    Now I am learning backhand-springs.

    Your art is great and can be an example for other kids in art classes.


    Your BFF,
    Lia

    1. @ Lia,

      Thank you for your kind compliments on both my video and blog!

      You're one of the best cartoon artists I know! My favorite part about your artwork are the eyes you make.

      Yes, I do know that you have a great passion for gymnastics. I can't wait to see you do a backhand-spring! What is the most challenging part about doing one for you? I know you will accomplish it.

      What is your favorite part about gymnastics?

      Your friend,
      Chloe

  2. Dear Chloe,

    You are a talented artist! Were you able to use real animals as models for some of your artwork? Did you use photographs as models for some of the animals?

    My favorite charities are related to animals, such as the Humane Society. I also like the Sierra Club because it works to protect the environment.

      Thanks for your great comment!

      I used photographs for my paintings and sketches. One time I would love to paint Princess!

      I love how you care about animals and our environment so much. Can you tell me more about the Humane Society and the Sierra Club?

      I would love that.

      Sincerely,
      Chloe

    2. Dear Chloe,

      I would love it if you would paint Princess!

      The Sierra Club works to protect the environment by educating the public and lawmakers. The Sierra Club also sponsors hikes in the wilderness. I met Rob at a Sierra Club hike 27 years ago!

      The Humane Society educates the public about animals and also rescues pets who need new homes. People who want to adopt a pet can contact the Humane Society or similar organizations and meet a dog or cat who would like to have a loving home.

      Your neighbor,

  3. Wow Chloe, you are such an amazing artist! I love art but unfortunately I have no talent for it, so I really appreciate when others are able to create such beautiful pictures. Keep up the beautiful work!
    My favorite charity is also the Talbert Foundation. Kinsey and I have been running in the Calabasas Classic for many years and will continue to do so in honor of Kevin.
    I love to go hiking on the trail by my house with Midnight. Next to swimming I think it is her favorite thing to do. I love animals too. Especially dogs. I hope to meet your hamsters soon.

    1. @ Cindy,

      I really love your comment!

      You say you have no talent for art. Well, according to Picasso, "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." I love that quote.

      Do you have a favorite quote?

      I especially love dogs as well! I think Midnight likes the fact that you like walking too.

      Did Midnight ever run with you and Kinsey in the Calabasas Classic?

      Elie and I ran last year on "Team Matthew" for a student in my school.

      We also knew Kevin and went to a Talbert Family Foundation yogurt fundraiser and to the Relay for Life in honor of Kevin.

      We miss him so much!

      I would love for you to come over and meet our Hamsters, Jack and Cheetah someday soon.

      Sincerely,
      Chloe

    Dear Chloe,

    I love your artwork! You are so talented and have such a big heart!

    I can't wait for your Art Exhibit! What a great way to raise money for charity.

    My favorite charity is also the Talbert Family Foundation! I love that they give 100% of the donations to local families facing catastrophic illnesses.

    I love art as well. I enjoy ceramics and make sculptures and vases.

    Do you ever use clay as your medium? Have you tried ceramics?

    I have a feeling that you would be great at it!

    Warmly,
    Savta

  14. Dear Chloe,

    Ever since you were 2 years old you were already showing great skills as an artist.
    You continue to develop your skills and style and your work is becoming more and more sophisticated, and I couldn't be more proud.
    Your idea about raising funds for charities just shows how generous you are.

    Keep up the good work!

    I love you,

    your proud Daddy
