Friday I had the good fortune to be the Artist In Residence at the Furnace Brook School and once again, really enjoyed sharing my painting process with the kids. I set up two easels and I painted on one, and every middle schooler that WANTED to paint, could on the other one.
Every year, every single boy asks if they can eat the props. This year a huge black fly kept alighting on them, but even telling them that, most of them still said they'd eat them. These days I'd probably go to jail for letting kids eat donuts at school, so I always say "I wish I could, but :D no...."
This day, with all those kids who maybe never put oil paint on a canvas before joining in... is a highlight of my year. Thanks to the Parent-Teacher organization for sponsoring it every single month!
