On Saturday I had the honor of being the Featured Artist for the “Savor the Arts” night at the Nampa Civic Center. I have a number of paintings on the art wall and brought additional paintings for the evening. It was a wonderful night followed by a concert.
My highlight was to have one of the art camp students (from the camp this summer at the Civic Center) come and introduce me to his mom. He introduced me as “Mom! She is the artist that taught me how to do my good art this summer”. What a delight to see such a smile on his face and excitement for his art. Being the teacher I am, I did ask him what he learned about texture and color. To my delight he named off the seven textures we did in the class. I hope to see him next summer at the camp and help him produce the “good” art again.
