Checkerboard Heart by Kelly Walker

Today I am starting something new.  Two-fer Tuesday is where I will  share with you other bloggers that I enjoy reading.  I hope you will give them a look. 

 I am starting with a favorite – Elizabeth Cottrell, a connection evangelist.  Her website, www.heartspoken.com, is a joy to read.   And recently she posted about Life Lessons from her dad that you must read.  Click on the link and enjoy!

Painting Together

I really like it when my art students bring a family member with them to paint.  This past week Joy brought her granddaughter, Colleen, to class.  And as you can see, like grandmother-like granddaughter, they painted sunflowers.  Great job ladies.  And nice to meet you Colleen.  Please come join us again.

You may remember a few months ago that Olivia brought her G-Pa to class with her.  So cute!   Read about that here.

The final day of the final week of Art Camp this summer saw us finishing our Warhol Pop Art paintings.  Half of the group  painted the Warhol Eagle and the other half painted a flamingo in the pop art style of Warhol. 

 We had a fabulous week of painting.  And the favorite part of every art camp week for the kids is the Artist Trading Cards. 

Each young artist paints a small painting, the size of a trading card, and then exchanges them with their fellow artists.  It’s a nice memento of their week with new friends.

Thursday at Art Camp we worked on a Van Gogh.  Since we’ve done Starry Night in the past we decided to something else that Vincent is well-known for, Sunflowers.  And didn’t these kids do a great job!  Just beautiful.

Wednesday was almost the perfect day at Art Camp.  We worked on a pointillism piece as the students learned about a different type of art. 

And the Adult Class joined us later in the morning.  Jeff brought Breeze with him to class and she was the most popular one in the class.  All the kids loved her and gave her cookies.  She’s such a great dog! 


But the best part of the day for me was first thing this morning before Art Camp started when Maggie brought me this painting that she did for me!  I love it!  Thanks so much Maggie.  You ROCK too!

Yesterday’s art camp focused on Henri Matisse.  I love the brilliant colors and definite style of his work and I think the kids enjoyed it too!

Maggie and Isaac are working on their paintings and  you can see Anastasia in the background hard at work.

And here is Peter and Anastasia working away.



Jade and Teaghan work on mixing just the right color to make it perfect!

Good job everyone.  Now tomorrow we will show you our attempt at Pointillism.
