Painting a Seahorse

Paint Was Flying . . .

I was invited to teach an art class in Carrollton, KY
for a summer program, Camp Impact.

13 students attended camp this week as they studied art.
Their director, Hannah Devine, is a Carroll County graduate
and devoted her summer to providing a worthwhile place for kids to safely spend their summer.  

The students were about 6-14 so we had a wide variety of ages and abilities, but they all did wonderful.

We had paint flying all over the place
 as we painted seahorses.

We learned to paint water, coral, plants, and then of course the seahorses and then moving water.

Lots of color and creativity
 were going on at Camp Impact yesterday.

This is my first blog post on my new iMac computer.
There is quite the learning curve on it,
so I'm not being too adventurous.

But I hope to get better 
and much quicker.

It took me forever to figure out how to download the pics.

And this tiny keyboard is killer.


  1. The camp looked a happy place. I admire you for doing what you do. A natural.
    I hate my imac - cannot believe I believed them when they said it was "intuitive!"

  2. Intuitive for who is my question. I know exactly what you're saying. But I am beginning to figure it out. They were a great group of kiddos to work with.
