I'm Back

Way more time than I wanted has gone by since my last post. I've been painting, joined a mail art group, an index card a day group and started teaching kids art. 

The kids are ages 6 to 8 years old. It's been both challenging and rewarding. I am thankful to all the art teachers who share their art teaching experiences. This knowledge helped me to plan for activities that suited the time frame (five one hour classes).

I just finished five days of one hour classes teaching drawing and cartooning. They were hard workers and displayed a range of interpretations of the projects. At the end they all received certificates of excellence for completing the course. I said I hoped they continued to draw and one boy's response was "I plan to because I love to draw". I'm getting ready to do a mixed media at the local Arts Council in August.

On the art making front I finished "Running" and am happy with it (photo to come).

I also finished a new painting, "Clouds", for the Langley Arts Council exhibit Summer Magic

Another bit of news is that I was accepted into the Fort Langley Art Collective. I am in the process of signing a contract at which time I will be listed as a member. I'm quite excited about this new venture.
