My senior citizens are finishing up their shirts.

Rhoda did hers all freehand, using markers and fabric paint.

   

FYI: Hau`ula is the community where we live.


I am so proud of her.  She has really become devoted to art as a hobby.

 :heeha: I would buy that shirt! Rhoda has a flare for design there  O0 Fantastic work Rhoda  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thank you Mea and Rhoda! You both are an inspiration.  :-* :-*

I like this- looks very unique. I agree with Val, people will like this as genuine art from Hawaiians.  :smitten: I would have bought one of these, too.

Thanks, Annie.

I will introduce the glass to gouache tomorrow.  I think they will like using it.

I was asked to do an art class for a health-related group.  I choose gouache as the medium.

Here are the class members with their matted pieces.  They were thrilled to go home with their own work of art.



Here is my sample painting to start the class.  They loved making the texture with sponges.
