Back to School

I had the greatest time today.  I got to visit my grandson, Jacob's VPK class and share my art.  We learned color mixing.  Also we learned the difference between abstract, impressionistic, and representational paintings!

Then we painted two paintings!  I say "we" because they were so helpful in telling me what the paintings needed as they progressed!

They are just like little sponges.....they absorbed everything very quickly and like "memory foam" they didn't forget!   If I made a mistake, they quickly told me!

If you get a chance to share with children (who,by the way, are not critical at all) by all means do so. I think I enjoyed it more than them!

And in one of the pictures I see little Savannah's (granddaughter/future artist) head, as she had moved to the "head of the class"!

One of the teachers took these pics...from across the room.  I promise there were 18 kids and two teachers in the classroom!

Looks like a fun day! I love that they "helped" you along. :-)
