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.

Bday Party 2.jpg

Paint Parties at The Studio are so much fun but Birthday Parties are especially fun!  Especially when it’s your 9th Birthday and all your friends join you got the celebration.  Yesterday Alayna celebrated her birthday by painting a lovely beach scene with a sea turtle (her special request for the party).  And boy did these girls do a fabulous job painting!!!  They are just so good.  I love how they jump right in.  Her mom said that a couple of the girls were a little scared at first but once they saw how we go step by step and demonstrate how to do it and come around and check on their progress they were just fine.

We always say that everyone can make a beautiful work of art at The Studio.  And it’s true.  Just look at these young artists works.  AWESOME!!!

Thanks Kristie for letting The Studio share in Alayna’s special day.  We loved it!

My private students painted summery scenes over the last two weeks….a Ball Park and a Beach with Flip Flops.  Nice work.  I like the flip flop scene so much that I painted it too and think this will be a great one for a Paint Party.  What do you think?
