So, this weekend I taught the JR ARTIST PROGRAM at the library and had eighteen kids registered (a record, I think). Unfortunately I didn't think of taking a final photo until a number of the kids had left but I was so proud of what they had accomplished...and more importantly, they were proud of their own work.
I decided to take my abstracted canoe process and incorporate the initial of their first name rather than a canoe, utilizing layers of mark making in warm and cool colours. They've all seen the article about my painted utility box project in AirdrieLIFE magazine and were excited to try it.
The editor of our local paper enjoyed the project so much she's asked that we offer this workshop to adults as well. Something I may have to consider.
