Last night I spent some time at the Clarke County Ruritan Fairgrounds helping judge the Heritage Festival Gourd competition.  If you have some time on your hands this weekend and like heritage arts the Clarke County Fairgrounds is the place to be.  There are LOTS of gourds for sale….large ones to make birdhouses, small ones to make decorative items….as well as other beautiful arts that are becoming lost in our technological world.

The festival, sponsored by the Virginia Lovers’ Gourd Society, is today, Saturday from 9-5 and Sunday from 9-4.  (Admission is a non-perishable food item for the local food bank.)

There were some beautiful entries in the contest and this year the group has become a nationally sanctioned competition.  It is worth the ride over to see this weekend.

More Mermaids…

I was asked yesterday how my mermaid turned out.  I did a quick one Monday afternoon so the girls would have a sample to refer to while we were painting.  She’s the one with the red/pink hair.  Then I painted the blonde one during the Paint Party.  I still want to go in and put something in her hair.  I was helping others finish up theirs so I didn’t quite finish.

The Blue Barns

kids-blue-barn-10-18The kids painted Blue Barns with orange trees this week at class.  We are always discussing complementary colors and color mixing and this was a great lesson in that.  (Don’t tell them they are actually learning while having a good time painting.  We sneak that in on them!)

Didn’t they do an awesome job?!?!  If you have a young painter they can join us.  Check out more information here.
