We have two sisters from Wisconsin who are living with us until summer so that they can attend a Christian art school in the big city. (Masters School of Art. Check out their website to see the amazing artworks produced by young students, some of them very young. http://www.msoaonline.com ) My son, Samuel, attended for one semester when he was twelve and I took an adult painting class there last spring. The girls are doing two days (ten classes) every week until June. Samuel is going along for one day and, glory be!, Peter (feeling left out) became bold enough to register for a day of classes also. He isn't inclined to do fine art but after having his first drawing 101 class last Friday declared he enjoyed it.
Among the subjects they all are doing is animal drawing, computer art (Photoshop), lyrical dance, color pencil, acrylic painting and they are all taking a photography class.
The girls had their first day of art school last Thursday. The first class was color theory and their very first lesson was monochromatic tones. They brought home their results.
I think they are off to a really great start!
Sarah posted scenes from her winter walk. I am back to walking also, now that I'm not preparing for a wedding. Here are scenes from my walk (with the girls) this weekend.

Feeling ready to begin a creative project today, I went through my trunk of fabric scraps to see what I had to work with. I also browsed a couple of my quilting books for inspiration.
I have a plan!
