Time to pick up the boys from school - so hard to leave wet paint on the palette!
At least I can enjoy the pictures...
Can you relate?

This was painted with deep gratitude for treasured friends! I am convinced that we were not meant to "bloom" alone. Like water, light and rich soil, God uses authentic, life-giving relationships to enable us to bloom as He created us.
I can relate to Verse 7 in the book of Philemon: "Your love has given me great joy and encouragement because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints."

I'm not a fan of them in my house, but I love them on paper!
In our final week of summer classes, we zoomed in on the insect world (and one spider).
Looking at the lines and shapes of the head, thorax and abdomen, we constructed our 'bugs'. Referring to the color wheel, we mixed analogous colors (neighbors on the color wheel) and used complementary colors (opposites on the color wheel) to give our paintings a pop of contrast. All the while, we kept our watercolors juicy - but in control.
Summer art classes are now finished.
It's so fun to look back at what we created!
In this week's class, students painted a 'self-portrait' inspired by George Rodrigue's Blue Dog. After creating a strong drawing, students painted light, medium and dark values. They then chose one thing to communicate about themselves. Enjoy!
I have more to show you from these great kids - soon!
