Olympic Art, From Watercolors to Etch a Sketch

From Etch a Sketch art to watercolors, Olympics art is proliferating. The Sochi Olympics are serving as a form of artistic inspiration even for the athletes.

Ski jumper Peter Frenette ( @pfSKIJUMPING) is using Twitter to display his artistic talent, tweeting these photos of his fellow teammates.

Emily Loughry expresses her artistic talent in a more uncommon way. "I am no artist with pen and paper but I do fairly well with the Etch A Sketch," she writes on her Facebook page.

The athletes love it. Emily tweeted this etch a sketch of snowboarder Kelly Clark.
