When that tragedy took place in Sandy Hook in December, I told myself that I needed to get involved with children again. Somehow. Someway. I wanted to. I have missed that youthful childlike spirit.
Then I remembered being asked by a neat gal from Girl Scouts to teach art to young girls. The Girl Scouts here do a very cool auction in the Spring called ArtVenture. They collaborate with established artists in their communities and create a piece of artwork for the auction.
This little kitty can’t wait to meet them. She will be the launching point for some great artwork.
I’ve been gathering art supplies for the girls and creating all sorts of things for them to do. Dick Blick has a great sale going so I was able to get lots of paint, brushes and canvases for our time together. I have a small group, which is perfect. I’ll let you know how it goes!
