Have you seen the movie despicable me?
There is a scene in the movie where the sweet character of Agnes,in a deep, gravelly voice whilst holding a stuffed unicorn and shaking it around with the hands back and forth say's “IT’S SO FLUFFY”.
I love it!
That's me, with all the excitement of a child at Art & Soul, only the words coming from my mouth are "THIS IS SO FUN! And it was. Life is pretty sweet when you can spend two full days painting and creating Sculpey clay dolls, surrounded by the kindness of others who share the same love of creating art, gleaning from the sweet teachers who share the gifts and talents they have. I feel SO very BLESSED that I am able to experience these artful adventures. I always come home renewed and fulfilled. I know I am repetitive when I say "art washes away from the soul, the dust of everyday life", but there is so much truth in that sweet quote.
The first class I took was "Every Face Tells A story" with the most adorable and talented Katie Kendrick. I loved painting with Katie. She was so kind and fun, I felt very much at ease in her class. I was very happy with the finished painting I brought home. Katie had us working on three paintings at one time but that did not work out so well for me! Someone forgot to tell her I am the SLOW girl in the class! I love painting so loosely- not worrying about proportions or the correctness of facial features- it felt very comfortable to me. I can't wait to finish the other two paintings that I started!
Here are a just a few of the paintings from some of the other students
The adorable Katie Kendrick
