Post Workshop Photos

Here are more photos from the Painting Workshop I did at the Chicago Children's Museum two weeks ago.

Students' Painting

My students this year ranged from one to seventy-eight year olds.  Who says age matters when it comes to learning a new skill?  On top of painting their own artworks, each participant took part in painting the collaborative piece. Forty one artists (including me) made their marks on the finished painting, including the tiniest, one-year old artist.

Now, meet the amazing budding artists and see their cool works below.

Participants' and their Paintings
If you missed it this year, make sure to mark your calendar on June 2012 for the bigger and better painting workshop.  Best of all, it's free for the whole family.  

Don't leave just yet.  If you're around Chicago on July 24 (Sunday) and want to learn how to paint Chicago cityscape in canvas, join us at the Family Fun Festival in Millenium Park from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.  More details to follow soon.

That sounds like an amazing time!
I'll have to tell my sister-in-law, they live in Wisconsin but they go to Chicago now and then, they might want to make a weekend trip out of it!

Hi Pili. If ever they come, tell them to say hi. I would love to meet them.
