The Studio is sponsoring a really fun event for the Humane Society of Warren County – PAWCASSO. When Lavenda Denney approached me last year about her idea for this project she knew she had me at art and rescue pets. She wanted to have the available animals at the shelter “paint” works of art to sell at a show at the arts council. I loved the idea and agreed to sponsor it right away but also suggested we take it a little further by offering private lessons for people who already have pets. So The Studio provided 10 sessions to people who would pre-purchase a large (18″ x 24″) painting with their pets. The pets had a private lesson with me and we created the large work of art. And it’s no surprise that those sold out. We have had so much fun with this project. And tonight is the reception from 6-9 pm at The Blue Ridge Arts Council at 405 E Main St. You don’t want to miss it! You have to see this art and these wonderful small works are for sale. Please come. Here are some of the painters at their session. LOL!

Sophia and Joey painted the same scene in different seasons this week at their lesson. Nice work!
We painted the Super Moon with Sophia and Joey this week. Look at what a great job they did! And mine is a small 5″x7″ canvas available for sale.
For Caleb’s second lesson he asked to paint a bird. Here is his little chickadee! His siblings wanted their photo made with him. 🙂 Great job Caleb!
You may know that we offer Kid’s Art Class every Wednesday from 4:15-5:15 for ages 7-13 but did you know that we offer private lessons for younger kids. Here is Marie with her little painting of her pup that she did in two lessons with us. And Sophia and brother Joey did these lovely barn paintings this week at their lesson. Kids love creating beautiful art. Do you have a young painter who might like to paint with us? Send us a message and we’ll get started. email@example.com
Marie loves to paint. She told me that yesterday. She said it was her favorite thing. She’s too young for my regular kid’s class so she is taking private lessons now every few weeks. After the first one she told me that purple was her favorite color so we painted the purple hydrangea at this lesson. Then she told me for the next time she wants to paint her dog. 🙂
Yesterday we had a private party. It was a special one as Ty was visiting from Brooklyn with his “Virginia mom”, Kimberly. And their friend Josh joined in at the party too.
Ty is Kim’s “Fresh Air Fund” son. I learned from their website that “since 1877, The Fresh Air Fund, a not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences in the country to more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities. At Fresh Air camps in Fishkill, NY, and with volunteer host families along the East Coast and Southern Canada, Fresh Air kids learn new skills, discover talents, build confidence, make friends and have fun. During the school year, The Fresh Air Fund continues to support students through tutoring, mentoring and leadership programs.”
What a terrific program! And what a terrific thing that Kimberly is doing with these kids. Ty was delightful and told me about all the many things they have been doing since he’s been visiting in Virginia.
