Van Gogh – The Immersive Experience in Washington DC was an interesting show. Here is a video to give you an idea of what it was like to be surrounded by his painting, projected all the way around the room and coming to life.

Yesterday I went to see the Van Gogh Immersive Experience in Washington DC. It was very interesting…unlike any exhibit I have ever seen. Normally at an exhibit you see the paintings of an artist but at this you see copies of Van Gogh’s works and information about his life. And then you actually sit in a large room surrounded by his works projected on the walls all around you. You feel like you are inside his works. VERY DIFFERENT!

Joy Paints Lily

Joy has been painting with me at The Studio for a long time. She loves her painting sessions and tells me that she paints to make others happy. She almost always is painting something for a family member or friend. Her portrait of Lily is for her niece. I’m sure that Lily’s mom will be thrilled with this gift. Keep painting Joy!

Kids LOVE painting at The Studio. They get so excited as they see their paintings come to life! And while they are having fun they are learning about color mixing, how to use brushes, and about different types of art. This week our Wednesday and Thursday classes created these gorgeous haybale landscapes. What a GREAT job they did! If you have a young painter ages 6-12 who would like to join in our Wednesday, 4:15-5:15 class or our Thursday, 11-Noon class, contact kwalker@kellywalkerstudios.com to sign them up. Come paint and join in the fun!

The artists at Capon Springs created some terrific paintings this week. It was so much fun painting with paint and with paper. And as always, Capon Springs Resort was delightful!

We are having so much fun with family and friends painting together at Capon Springs Resort this week. If you didn’t make it you are missing out on so much fun!!!! We will hopefully have out 2022 dates soon so you can put it on your calendars and plan to join us to learn to paint or come to improve your painting skills. It’s a great place to relax and learn!

The Studio is such a terrific place to celebrate birthdays. It’s fun event and all the guests go home with a great painting! Adelaide celebrated her 9th Birthday yesterday with her friends and family. What a fun group! Happy Birthday Adelaide! Keep painting sweet girl!

I am obsessed with String Quilting. I was looking for something to do with the TON of scraps I have left from multitudes of rag quilts we have made in workshops. I had boxes of scraps and have been wanting to clean out but I hate to throw away anything useful….you know what I mean. So I started looking for something that we might be able to do as a workshop at The Studio….something a step beyond the beginning rag quilts that we make. I think I found it in the “Quilt As You Go” method of String Quilts. These are so much fun to make and there are many options for designs. I love the scrappy look of these diagonal squares but you could purchase matching fabric to make a more “uniform” design. I’ll share again when it’s done but I had to lay out the squares I finished to see how it was going and I LOVE IT! Twelve squares here and I am going to do 8 more before I connect them. Can’t wait to see it!!!!

It’s Almost Fall

It’s almost fall. Time for some pumpkin paintings….and more! Pumpkins, hay bales, mums…..

Yesterday at Kid’s Art Class we learned about Folk Art as we painted this cute pup in a canoe. Lincoln was disturbed that it didn’t look like him LOL! If you have a young artist that would like to join in on the fun contact Kelly at kwalker@kellywalkerstudios.com to register.
