Wednesday painters -Mara, Maggie & Judd
Thursday Painters – Gabby, Dorothy, Kaylee, Mia, & Daniel

A few months ago Maggie brought in this cute little stuffed toy – a dachshund with a hot dog costume on.  So we photographed it and finally got around to painting it in class.  If you look closely at Maggie in the photo you can see the toy on her head!  This was a great lesson for the painters in shading.   They all did a great job!!!

They painted panels that represent their school, county and town government, tourism and agriculture in our community. 

Great job!!!

For about 2 1/2 hours yesterday morning and again yesterday afternoon, we had the pleasure of working at the Blue Ridge Arts Council with 13 terrific young artists from Warren County Middle School. 

It was a whirlwind of activity from the minute they arrived.  They were given their canvas and started painting right away. 

I am so grateful that Shelly, one of my adult painting students came to help.

And so did Linda.  It would have been near impossible to get as much done as we did without Linda and Shelly working with us.

And a busy day it was.  In the few hours that we had those 13 students produced 26 paintings.

Absolutely amazing!!!

Here are a few samples of the wonderful work they did.  As soon as the pieces are put together I will be posting the finished works of all of these students.  Many thanks again to Kym, Shelly and Linda!
