Speaking to Girl Scouts about art

Speaking to Girl Scouts about art

CAM07245Yesterday I was asked to speak to a group of Girl Scouts about being a full-time artist.  They were a great group of girls who toured the Blue Ridge Arts Council before our session and had several questions about art.  I was working on the demonstration painting for our 1st Saturday Paint Party so they watched as I completed the flowers.  They enjoyed it so much that they want to come back and do a little painting.  So we will meet again later in the month!

I did finish the demo painting for this Saturday’s Paint Party and there are still a couple of seats open if you want to join us and paint this little geranium painting.  Contact me today.

Katrinka's Birthday Paint Party

Katrinka’s Birthday Paint Party

We had a fabulous time yesterday at Katrinka’s Birthday Paint Party.  You all did a great job on your paintings.  I love it when the attendees come in and haven’t painted before and are a little nervous about what they are going to do but then they leave with a terrific painting.

You can learn more about upcoming Paint Parties open to everyone here.  Or book a private party for you and your friends.

Ethan and Madeline's Daffodils

Ethan and Madeline’s Daffodils

We had a successful day at our kid’s and adult art classes yesterday.  Ethan and Madeline (a brand-new student) painted these fabulous spring daffodils.  I love the blue background and bright yellow impressionistic flowers.  Great work!

Logan's Owl

Logan’s Owl

And in the adult class, Logan finished this adorable owl.  Logan started in my kids class several years ago and then moved up to the adult group this past year.  She’s a natural!  She has picked up every tip I have thrown out and applied it to her work.  I am so proud of you Logan.  SUPER!

Nick's Peonies

Nick’s Peonies

And the peony painting is by Nicholas another adult student who began painting with me last fall.  He didn’t want his photo taken but I had to share the beautiful painting he just completed.  Nick paints meticulously and it shows in his beautiful work.

Great job everyone!
