Art Time!

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain and artist once he grows up."

-Pablo Picasso

As an artist, one of my hopes for my children is that they will grow up to appreciate the arts. They may never be the next 'Monet', but I never want them to be afraid to express themselves through the arts. Therefore I make sure to expose them to as much art as I can as often as I can.

Deep in thought. This is one activity that will keep her attention for a while.

Pierson created his master piece. If you look closely at the blue spot you can see the airplane that "is going get i-cream"!

Happy Painting!

I was always so inhibited at art - wish I had you for an instructor. Every child has a hidden artist inside. Your kids are very fortunate.

Hmm, my kids make the effort of getting paint out not worth the time. Maybe they need to come to "art camp" at your house to unlock their hidden talents!
I love Maylin's determined look. She must have had something in her mind...

They are definitely developing an interest in art. Maylin you are really focused on your papers. I I want to go on your airplane to get ice cream with you, Pierson.
