Moms Night Out!

It doesn't get much better than friends, wine, art and conversation! Cary Moms Group taking a break from mom chores and painting the challenging scene of the gardens at the Louvre, Paris! What a great job these ladies did! Some had never painted before! A big hand to the dads also who, for the most part, did not call in for reinforcements!

Results from 5 day Portrait Art camp!

Creating Portraits of people is not easy. Creating a  Pastel portrait in just over an hour is equally as challenging! But Cameron was one of 6 students who did just that in our recent week long Portrait art camp for tweens/teens held in the Wake Forest Art and Frame shop! The students first worked with caricatures, cartoons, pencil shading before moving into acrylic and pastels! Great job by the whole group!

Teen Portrait Art Camp

Last day of the teen portrait art camp but wow, what a job they have done!
Pizza party yesterday set the tone for the day's class and the final day is a compilation of all that they have learned from a week of drawing, sketching and painting a most difficult art form-the human face!

Another fun Art Party evening!

What a hot, sultry day yesterday was! But inside the Wake Forest frame shop, it was cool and wonderful!
We stayed busy all evening with people popping into the work area to join those already there painting and it was fun to "be a destination" for many of them :-)  In these free art events, participants simply enjoy putting paint on a surface. There is not particular is more like "paint what appeals to you." Once they grasp that concept, they jump right in!  I was not able to photograph them all but the faces below say it all!
