Another session of Art Camp is off to a GREAT start! Yesterday we painted a wonderful copy of Manet’s Peonies, one of my favorites. And the kids painting turned out magnificent. Terrific painters. Can’t wait to see how today’s painting turns out.
Ps. I got a question about why one kid keeps covering his face. His parents prefer that his image not be posted on the internet but I wanted him to be able to show off his beautiful work so this is our compromise. :-)

The terrific thing about painting is that anyone can do it. If you have the desire to paint, you can learn to paint. Paint Parties are a chance to learn something new with a great group of friends. A little food, a little drink, a lot of laughing. And in the end you have a new painting. Why don’t you get a group together for a party of your own?
Last night we had a fabulous group of painters for their second party and look at the wonderful work they did! Super work everyone!!! It was so much fun. Read more about paint parties here.
We had a great day of Art Camp with the young artists painting Monet’s Poppy Field. We talked about Monet (that they like to call Money) and impressionism and they painted these fabulous paintings. Great job!
This was the first time we have offered camp for this young age group and they were great. How can you resist their happy faces when they show off their art.
Here are the Grady twins (with Gryffin photo-bombing) with their painting of Blue Dog. They brought it back in for me to frame for them. Wonderful!
The young artists did a fabulous job on their poppy paintings yesterday. We had a little “test” to be sure they are remembering some of the things I tell them in class and they all did a terrific job. I so glad that what I teach is sticking with them. Great job everyone!!!
My niece Lexie graduated from high school yesterday and I gave her this painting as one of her graduation gifts. She loves blue Hydrangea so I painted this one just for her. It’s a 12″x12″ acrylic on canvas.
I got to paint with my young friend, Kaylee, yesterday for the first time in quite a while. She used to paint with me every week so I have missed seeing her. We had a nice visit while she painted this beautiful piece for her great-grandmother Edna who she will be visiting in a few weeks. I know that she will love this thoughtful gift. Nice job Kaylee!
