Arianna's First Art Show

The USC art department offers art classes every semester called the Young Artists Workshop. Arianna was VERY excited about FINALLY being old enough to participate this Spring. Ellen has done it twice already and Arianna has patiently waited until she turned 6 to sign up. The class is a hour and a half every Friday for 6 weeks. They do projects with acrylics, watercolor, clay, etc. There is a reception after the last class where the teachers display the works and serve refreshments. It is a nice event since we are able to get to see everyone's work in such a professional way. The kids are always so proud.
These are some of the clay pieces. Arianna's is the yellow horse head.
Here's Arianna's self portrait that was done to look like a batik.
We took them out to dinner to celebrate Arianna's first art reception.
This is Ellen's lizard.
Sorry to the grandparents for not giving notice of this event. It really snuck up on me this year and I was not expecting the weeks to go by so fast!

Very nice! Way to go, Arianna -- sorry I missed this one. I remember at Ellen's reception last year how proud I was that you and Ellen were the only children I saw who filled up their plate with veggie snacks! (I know -- it's strange what grandparents remember!) Congratulations on completing the course!

wooo wheee girls...great work. Your Mimi is very very proud. I could tell immediately that the yellow horse was Arianna's -- isn't that funny that I knew at a glance? Good job. Ellen, your lizard looks so real.
