20180516_160930.jpgI had my final session with the Virginia International Academy students yesterday.  This group has been such a bright spot for me.  They have been receptive to trying new styles and techniques and have made some beautiful art.  They told me they are anxious to take it home to China this summer for their families to see.  Yesterday they wanted to paint a beach scene so we did a large canvas.  Great work!

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.
