What a treat to relax and have coffee in bed. I’m taking a weekend off from painting and instead came to Washington DC to look at some wonderful art and become inspired. More to share in the days to come.

After having the Art Camp kids all week it was a nice break to only have one young artist in the regular class this week. (Some of my regulars were in art camp.) So she chose a sock monkey to paint. And a really great job she did on him!!!!
Way to go Logan. Keep up the great work!

We wrapped up session 3 of Art Camp with a wonderful Monet painting of the Lady with the Umbrella. We worked on it for two days and these young artists did brilliant job. I am sure their families are excited about the outstanding art that these artists produced this week at Art Camp.

The 3rd session of Art Camp begins today with young artists, ages 8-13, as we study the Impressionists. We will paint like Monet, Degas and Renoir! Doesn’t that sound like fun? Well, it will be.
Today we will discuss Pierre-Auguste Renoir who was a leader in the development of the Impressionists style. He is best known for his use of light and saturated color and his feminine subject matter. You can read more about Renoir here. The young artists will be painting Renoir’s Blue Cup today. Check in tomorrow to see how their painting turns out.
