Preparing for the Youth Center Art Class

Here you can see my preparation for collage work. I painted around 90 pieces of paper this past week to prepare for the class I am teaching at the Youth Center. Last week when I taught another group of older kids to paint this way they couldn't believe they were "allowed" to paint so crazy! Kids even said their Art Teacher never lets them paint like this!

Art Show at the Art Center

Here are 2 of my pictures from the Art Show. They will be hanging in the Gallery until July 21st. Kame is the Japanese Turtle with baby that was inspired by the Okinawan Ocean and animals that live there. Gumballs...... I was having Artist block and needed something colorful and fun, then I saw a gumball machine- about 10 hours of cutting, arranging and glueing later- Gumballs was complete. Enjoy!
