Wow, a month gone by?
Summer is passing by quickly and I have mainly been enjoying this time with my family. We have had so many fun things going on. Lounging poolside, playing games, building a hotel-elevator and all!, nature outings and projects, gardening, zoo visits, hanging with friends, cooking out, hiking, building campfires-eating hobo dinners and smores!, reading, playing school, many adventures, arts gallore and so much more. I am teaching once a month at the museum. My classes might be full, but please come see me for drop-in-art!
July 10th we will be making Design and go Costumes.
Aug 14th we will be painting O'Keeffe Flowers
I have been fortunate to share art with kids at the OKCMOA for a few years. I am still amazed when I walk in the doors and I never take for granted the awesome exhibits and pieces from the permanent collection I am able to see anytime I want.
New to me though, on my own, is working with Metropolitan Library System.
I have done outreach through the museum with the MLS on a few occasions, but this summer it's just me! I have been visiting different libraries around the OKC area bringing art to a lot of kiddos. We have been busy making artist trading cards and learning about printmaking. I have met so many neat kids and parents. I have seen a lot of talent and ambition this summer. Kids hungry for art. Eating through supplies faster than I can buy them. Not only from my own children, but from kids all over the city. It continues the battle in me...artist vs. educator. What do I really want to be when I grow up? Can I really be both?
Do you know what you want to be when you grow up? ;)
