If you're a tween and you've found 12:34, you're looking for something a little different than what many kid craft sites have to offer; toilet paper roll crafts might not seem as cool as they once did and perhaps you're looking to try your hand at something with a little more style. At 12:34, we hope to bridge the gap between projects for little kids and projects geared towards teenagers and adults. We try our hand at art, crafting, stamping - if we think it's cool - we'll try it. Thanks for dropping by! N&K

WEEK 1 - City.Town.Community

This week we are drawing a community. It can be a cityscape of high rises and sky scrapers, a street crammed with charming old fashioned shops, or even something more rural, like a small farming town. The focus is on details and repetition with thought to scale and shading. Sketch in pencil and then draw over your work with black fine liner. You may want to fill in more buildings behind, or add flowers and trees to your cityscape, even people and street vendors if you so choose. Hand coloring using pastels or pencil crayons when finished.Ki Ki thought it would be fun to spoof a plate collection with paper plates. Here's our first attempt.

Recipe changes:

City of the future: Draw what you think cities in the future may look like. Use interesting shapes and transportation to make your idea shine.Close up: Do a detailed study of a particular portion of a building. Windows, doors, alcoves, brickwork, stone carvings, even store signs may be inspiring.

Remember - it's all good!
