Beautiful Things Await Those Who Wait

For our 2016 art sessions, we’ve been focusing on painting for our first unit of study. And although our 8th graders did not think they could do it, they have come up with some wonderful nature scenes. They had to learn painting is self-appeasing.

It is about self-expression, and it does not have to look exactly like someone else’s to look good. As our on-screen instructor Bob Ross taught us: there are no mistakes in painting, just happy accidents. It took some time and now…behold: serene hand painted nature scenes!
