Winter Days are Art Days

"All children are artists. The challenge is to remain an artist once they grow up." -Pablo Picasso
I love that my children love art. For the past several years D has combined his love of birds with his love of drawing and I now have a house full of lovely bird drawings and paintings. My kids are soooooo lucky to have a wonderful art teacher right here on the south shore. She is gentle and patient and encouraging and all the things a good teacher should be. In her classes the children choose what they would like to work on and the medium they would like to use. They work at their own pace, picking up skills and ideas as they go. It's been truly amazing to watch D's art work evolve over the past two years in her classes. You can check out her website at http://www.bettinalesieur.com/
