Fall Painting at YAWS

December 24, 2010

This fall I had a great class of very energetic and focused boys! We painted and painted until layers of paint were built on multiple pieces over time.  They were very proud of their paintings and their ”artist hands” – colorful with all their hard work! I loved working with them – especially on our tryptch’s that led to some fantastic titles like

 ”Robot vs. Devil vs. Human”

 and “Accident Dog”.

We then hand printed our own wrapping paper and each child gave their masterpiece to someone special for the holidays!
