My First Art Class (as a Teacher)

I taught my first art class today with a delightful group of kids and one mom/friend who got the group together. The kids made wonderful journals with painted burlap covers.

As always with kids, I was amazed at their natural artistic abilities. How do we lose that confidence as we become adults?

Here are the kids (and Melissa!) hard a work:

Working outside in the sunshine helped to make it a truly enjoyable day.

My, you've been a busy blogger lately! I loved reading about your class and seeing all the photos of the kids. They sure look like they had a blast! And I love your new journal - the cover is especially scrumptous! Hugs, Shari
