Thanks, Sharon and Win.

This week I have 8 x 10 inch canvas panels for them to do an acrylic painting of their choosing.

Oh Mea I wish I lived in your community. I just spent 2 hours looking on the internet to see what I can get involved in this coming year here in Indianapolis. The Arts council seems really big here but it is very very expensive. A class is almost $400.00 and joining for a senior is over $80.00. I don't even have money like that!!! I guess I stay at home with my Art this coming New Year. I really want to find a little art community but I guess I'm out of luck living here in the city of Indianapolis. I want to show my art but not like that street fair I went to earlier this year.
Art is when you hear a knocking from your soul...
and you answer.....

Robynann,

How about rehab hospitals - ours have art groups for therapy?

I sometimes have friends in for paint sessions. That's fun.

Yes, being part of the area art community is so much fun.

My seniors painted 8 x 10" canvases in acrylic this week or finished their Christmas cards.

They are doing so well.  We are now doing weekly classes.

My senior art class was featured in the weekly newspaper this week.  They will be so excited.  I picked up a bunch of extra papers to be sure they will all get a copy.

My seniors made more Christmas cards today.  They love using the crinkled paper technique!

Got a new student today, too.
