I was asked to do a little cricket character for Maria’s House Montessori school in Doylestown, because in their variety of great learning experiences for children the school is introducing – cricket! (the sport, that is)
I sketched a pencil cricket with some of the appropriate playing gear, bat, helmet, shin guards –
and after tightening up the sketch I added digital color using the school’s logo and colors to tie it all in.
I am quite impressed with the variety of activities a new Montessori school offers its little students – Maria’s House, a traditional Montessori, opened in the fall in my hometown area. They asked me to draw a range of experiences that will be available in their summer session, from fencing to equestrian pursuits.
The summer session is a ‘bridge’ for the students between the end of this school year and the start of the next, so it is titled Ponte Montessori.
I am told that the art will be used in the advertisement below, and published in our local papers as well as the Philadelphia Inquirer, Bucks County Magazine and the New York Times. Included is another drawing I made of the lovely main house of the school.
