Working Artist Side Hustle: Painting with Kiddos

The past month and half has included quite a few transitions, a lot of them work-related. As you can see, it's kept me busy and away from the computer, which is kind of nice and also kind of a problem for blog and Instagram upkeep. My apologies for letting it all fall by the wayside. I'm hoping that by summer things will start to even out again. Or... maybe not. I'll just have to do my best to keep my many hats on all at the same time.

One of the newest hats in my collection is children's art teacher.

This past weekend I taught a mini class for a birthday party at the Mainline Art Center, which was a fun new adventure for me. The birthday child loves horses, so I had the group of 10 and 8-year-olds paint some horses with lots of TEXTURE. I'll tell you about our project so that anyone in need of some creative expression can play around at home.

Glue (Elmer's is fine)
Acrylic paint and brushes
