student work

Aviva, age 9

Hope, age 13

Jennie, age 12
I am fortunate work with 3 talented young artists (ages 9, 12, 13. ) Just look at their recent still life work!
I wish I could remember the exact quote from Aviva today. After looking at many different artist's still life paintings (with flowers) we were talking about the differences. It went something like, "Why do people want to paint it realistic with so many details? They could just take a photograph. It has no soul."

Happy Mother's Day everyone!

WOW! What intelligent insight from a 10-year old. We have so much to learn from our students.
