We had the most special Birthday Party at The Studio yesterday afternoon for McKinley.  Her family and friends came together to each paint a canvas that we put together to make this amazing mural painting of Flamingos to hang on her bedroom wall.  Isn’t that a special gift?!  Great work everyone.  It looks GREAT!

Yesterday at Kid’s Class we painted Flamingos.  The kids did a great job on theirs.  At the end of class I showed them how they can “doll” their paintings up with extras…like a wreath for Christmas on this Flamingo.  How about a Christmas Bird?  Is this one you’d like to paint?

Paper Flamingo

Paper Flamingo

I love trying new forms of painting.  That is why I went to the workshop this summer at Nimrod Hall to discover more about painting with paper.  (Check it out here.)

This past week I had the opportunity to put that new knowledge to work when I had a few ladies come into The Studio who wanted to make  paper collages.  While they worked on their pieces I used an unfinished painting that I had used as demonstration piece for a kids class to show them what to do.  I really like how the flamingo turned out.

And now I have dug out at least 3 dozen old demonstration paintings that were just lying around that I think I will rework using paper.  It’s relaxing and fun!  So why not???!!!!

The final day of the final week of Art Camp this summer saw us finishing our Warhol Pop Art paintings.  Half of the group  painted the Warhol Eagle and the other half painted a flamingo in the pop art style of Warhol. 

 We had a fabulous week of painting.  And the favorite part of every art camp week for the kids is the Artist Trading Cards. 

Each young artist paints a small painting, the size of a trading card, and then exchanges them with their fellow artists.  It’s a nice memento of their week with new friends.
