The Art Lesson

Wow, I can't believe it's been over a year since my last post!  Time sure does fly :)  A lot has happened since my last post, but catching up will have to wait for later.

Today I want to post about our art lesson.  First, I should mention that I am not at all artistic, lol.  So teaching art has always seemed rather daunting to me.  However, I recently came across THIS PAGE (thank you Pinterest, lol) and thought, "hey, that doesn't look too difficult!"  So, I got a couple inexpensive sets of soft pastels at Michaels and decided to give it a try.  I just got cheap sets to start with so we can play around with them and see if we like them before making any kind of big investment on a better set.  If we decide we like them (and I think we will!) I'll probably go to the art store in downtown and see what they have for nicer pastels.

Anyhow, on to the lesson! We followed the A Path To The Beach tutorial since it was labeled as the first one.  Here are our results :)

Everyone working very intently!

And for those of you who know that my house is blessedly small, you may want to know how we chose to display our new creations!  I used some 3M sticky things (I don't remember what they are called!) on the back of some clothes pins and attached them to the wall above the front door.  Here is a picture:

Thank you so much to Tricia (and Nana!) at Hodgepodge for sharing their knowledge with the rest of us!
