Can you see how proud mommy is?
And so this year we decided to try art classes at a local art school. I've driven by this place for years and never paid it much attention to it. I read on the website that it is a real, honest to goodness art studio, with professional artists on staff. There were classes for kids her age. I signed her up.
Each class meets weekly for two hours. The first two classes focused on pencil sketches, shapes, shading etc. She produced these:
Then came lots of pastels. Everywhere.
She made a lovely vase. Freehand.
And finally this hummingbird came home this week.
My old school friend Nicole is a lovely artist. I hope the my daughter continues to take lessons and enjoy art. Maybe someday will encourage her brother to take them, too.
He's got his own little collection of ribbons going, but mostly he just likes his Wii.
