First Art Group!

With family in town for Thanksgiving, I decided to initiate the studio with our first art group. I separated the kids into two groups based on age and playmates. The older kids began working on a watercolor tissue collage, but soon found more interesting materials to work with!

The younger kids started off finger painting, then moved on to texture painting with various objects.

Naomi decided to stay in the studio and "help" the younger kids

Texture painting with trucks!
At the end of the day the studio was covered in paint and glue- What a success!

Studio Transformation

Here is the beginning of the transformation- from a blank canvas to a workshop where imagination and creativity flow.

I'm slowing adding materials to the shelving- and discovering what I can put at toddler-height!

Blank Canvas

This is the studio- a blank canvas waiting for it's true potential to be revealed. I can't wait to get started!
