Summer is just about over and the back-to-school shopping is done. New
“to do” calendars and events are being organized, penciled in, and budgeted…
with that information pending I am thinking about that a wonderful, and busy
season is ahead.
We are ready for a routine… and ready to enjoy the warm
evenings that September and October will bring, along with beautiful sunsets
and cool breezes that will follow. In the next few weeks I will be adding
some blocked time for regularly scheduled art classes for all age groups.
Toddlers – Early Learning, Pre-school – Pre-Kindergarten, Early Elementary,
Middle Grade, Young Adult, and Adult art classes. Whether for an
individual looking to expand on current art knowledge and technique, or a small
child learning how to hold crayons and paint brushes, a customized art plan is
available for you. Morning and early afternoon classes can be arranged when
children are at school. Take a look at the many options that I offer, and

I gave my students the word "Scruptious" as an example of how to get inspiration for painting. One of the little girls went with it... painting this image of a glass of milk and yellow and red plate with a chocolate chip cookie and a donut with sprinkles. "Scrumptious"...
If you were given the word scruptious... what would you draw or paint?
