Thanks, Dennis.

Thanks, Robynann.

I took my senior art class to the exhibit today and they were so proud to see their teacher's artwork with an award ribbon.  They also loved seeing all the different types of art  (185 pieces) so now we have new ideas to try in the future.

 :heeha: Road trip!!! What a great group..... say,  :detective: I'm not seeing my fella there  ??? .  He'll have to paint an extra picture for me as penance!  ^-^ :2funny:

Fantastic, and so fabulous of you to take the group for an outing.   :-*      :clap: :clap: :clap:

I was wondering if you'd notice the Fella missing, Val.  He and his wife were not able to go.  She was with me on Saturday for the reception, though.  Wish the Fella could have seen it.

Thanks, Rick.  Not only did we see the exhibit, we visited a watercolor class doing botanicals; another exhibit showcasing the fauna of the park (400 ACRES with lush tropicals everywhere, mountain backdrop, a lake, etc.); and a display of the different types of plants on the property.  This is a Honolulu city park, so everything was free.

Great day.

Oh dear, I hope they are both well. Sad they weren't able to see the show. Next one then. Your students will be able to have a show of their own soon, I expect they've all got quite a collection of pieces now.  :heeha:
Cheers, Val

Thanks, Val, I saw the fella today and he was pleased that you were concerned about him.  They were both in fine fettle (Is that really a word?) today.

Thanks, Linley and Sharon.  They bring so much joy into my life.  I can physically see the positive impact that learning to draw and paint has made on their lives.  That's an incredible feeling.  One lady said to her daughter the other day:  "I have just blossomed in this class.  I used to be so shy.  Now I get involved in everything.  I love doing art."

Good to hear, thanks Mea. Yes Mea, that is a real word!  ;D   It has a few meanings dependent upon context.  O0

It truly is a gift to see the eyes come alight when someone actually sees they can do something they thought themselves incapable of. Keep turning on those lights Mea.  :flowers:
Cheers, Val

Mea, I missed this.  CONGRATULATIONS on placing second.  It is so lovely to see how proud your students are of you too.  Thanks for showing us.
