FlagAs a history major I feel that there are several important documents that every American should read on occasion.

One of the most important is the Declaration of Independence.  Several years ago I started making it a tradition to read it every Independence Day.  Please take a few minutes to read it.  It’s an amazing document.  There is a copy here that is easy to read.

Happy Independence Day!

Then our regular Wednesday Kid’s Class came in followed by the evening Adult Art Class.  Whew!!!!!!   A long day but a lot of happy artists.  🙂

I like the image of old barns with our flag hanging proudly.

Our Flag

From Art Camp 2011

From Art Camp 2011

We celebrate our flag and our country today as the Inaugural Festivities take place in Washington. This piece of art is a mixed media piece that we did in art camp a couple of years ago.  The kids did a great job with paint and paper making these wonderful flags – an emblem to celebrate. We’ve painted flags several time with Kids Class.  Check out Olivia here with her painting of flags.    And check out more flag art from my students by clicking here.
