Art Class at Ella Sharp

For those of you who like to read my blog regularly, I apologize that I haven't been better at posting this past week. I have been busy, but didn't draw or write in my journal much at all since last Saturday and that is the main reason why I haven't posted anything until today. Sam and I took a last minute trip this weekend (which we planned on Thursday) to Grand Rapids where we stayed at a Bed and Breakfast. We had a wonderful time without the kids. We have a wonderful babysitter who was more than happy to stay the night with them...she is so great that we didn't really worry about the kids at all while we were gone.
This past week I have been teaching classes at Ella Sharp. I had 1st through 3rd graders. I only had 6 kids and they were all wonderful artists. They were so enthusiastic about everything they did and very well mannered. It was a lot of fun for me to teach them. I taught them about 5 famous artists and we learned about their art and the media that they use to create it. I could not believe the work these kids turned out. Three of them (of which their art is below) were only going into first grade! They did such a wonderful job on these Georgia O'Keeffe inspired drawings that their parents want to frame them and I think they all deserve a place of honor. They are awesome, don't you think?
