Art Camp at The Studio started yesterday with these 4 great young painters (and Lincoln) as they painted these cute little geese in a lavender field. We are exploring animals in this 2 day camp. We have lots more great sessions coming up this summer. Check out the schedule here and register your young artists. And don’t miss the sewing camps too. We have one starting Thursday and there is one space left in it!

We had a full house yesterday for our Hydrangea Paint Party….and everyone did a beautiful job on their canvases. I missed a few people as they left before I could get the photo. 😦 And we were thrilled to have several new painters with us. We’d love to have you join us at The Studio soon. Check out our upcoming events here. We just added two new paintings that we just love!

Art Camp begins with our first session on Monday for ages 5-7. The thenme for Art Camp I is “Animal Affair”. Our young painters will create several animal themed paintings on Monday and Tuesday.

Here are some of the quilters from our other Row Quilt class. They are making great progress. They are doing beautiful work!

These quilters are making good progress on their Row Quilt. Bet you can’t wait to see how they come together! I know I can’t.

Sandy is Lincoln’s sitter. She has been with us even before Lincoln so she has been a family friend for a very long time. Recently she was admiring a specialty quilt that I made for another friend and I told her I would make one for her that featured something she loved. Did I mention that Sandy is an amazing photograper? Well, she is. So I wanted to make her quilt with a camera theme. I asked her to send me some photographs she had taken….some of her favorites. Having received them I started laying out a design that would include a camera and film and this is what I came up with. The camera and film roll are applique. The black and white film is pieced fabric made to look like film. I printed Sandy’s photos on EQ8 Satin Printable Fabric Sheets. The border fabric with cameras I got through Joann’s. This quilt took way more time in planning than I anticipated but I was happy with the results. And I think Sandy liked it!

I’ve written before about my student, Dianne, who brings her out of town friends to The Studio when they visit so they can paint a memory to take home. (See more here.) This week she brought her friends from Florida, Mary and Rick, who painted these lovely canvases. Great work!!!! Come visit and paint with us again soon.

We had a great group of painters tonight at The Studio creating lovely canvases of tulips. Nice work everyone!!!! Check out the upcoming events at The Studio here and come join the fun!

Look what Lincoln gave me for Mother’s Day! It’s a “new to me” sewing cabinet that I have been wanting or awhile. We lucked out and found one on Marketplace up in Pennsylvania. I can’t wait to get the insert for the machine and then it will be perfect!
