Nurturing the Next Generation of Artists


My granddaughter Bea is a budding artist. You remember back in May when we got her a treasure chest full of art supplies for her birthday? She loved it, and is enjoying experimenting with them, but we never seem to have much time.

So, it was time for my art group, and I thought she might like to come and play with us.

She packed up all her supplies in case the art ladies wanted to see them, and we set off.

She tends to be a little shy, so I wasn’t sure how much interaction there would be with Miss Janet and Miss Verna, but she did very well! They were lovely to her and showed her what they were working on, and asked her opinion. She felt very much at ease and like part of the group.

She started out working on her button project, but Miss Janet was working on her art journal, so she decided to work on hers, too.

She’s a mixed media kinda girl – notice the paint, stamps, ribbon, and washi tape?

It was just the cutest thing!

We had a great time, and she is excited to go again! I love nurturing her interest in art, and I loved that my art pals were so supportive! Thanks, guys. You made her day!
