More Art!!

Last Friday we got back together with our 'Field Trip Friday' group. One of our friends is an amazing artist and art teacher in Holland. She did a lesson with acrylic paints for the kids. They loved it so much!! She had them paint a 'magical forest' with beautiful trees that had 'xoxo' and other letters for leaves. They also enjoyed driving matchbox cars through the paint and all over another canvas. It was so amazing to see their creativity blossom. It was also hilarious to see 7 kids under the age of 5 1/2 painting with acrylic paints on a drop cloth in Amy's garage (bless her heart!). The kids could not stop talking about how much fun they had!! We can't wait to hang up their masterpieces.

Try to picture the arrangement in the van....7 wet acrylic canvases and 3 kids :) I love my mini van!
