Love Those Grandkids!

My husband took us back to California just a few weeks after we'd come back from there. He wanted to fix up some of the family computers. While there I got my 13 year-old granddaughter signed up for Laure Ferlita's Autumn Class which just started (there is still room. Go here ). I helped her sign up in blogger and showed her what she'd need to participate fully. She wanted to try out the new watercolors I'd gotten her which would be used in the class so she and one of the other granddaughters sat down to paint. They didn't know what to paint though! So I put down my coffee mug and had them choose between it and a pink goblet that was already on the table. One chose the mug and the other the goblet. Then I showed them how to paint them and they did a great job. You can see for yourself they did a great job. Now let me tell you, these girls are 11 and 13 and this was their first try at using watercolors in a real way. If they can do it, so can you! So scoot on over and join in on one of Laure's classes. You won't regret it.

Working with your grandkids is so much fun. Corey used to do "crafts" with me when I would get ready for shows. I have such wonderful memories of those times we spent together.

So very cool! Love to see that first blossom when a young person realizes "hey, I can do this!"

Thanks for signing her up, TImaree!

Lucky grand daughter. I absolutely love messing around with watercolors and non of my grand daughters like to play with paint. My one grand daughter is learning to knit with me and she draws so well and the other is doing the mother thing with two darling great grandkids at 28 months and 6 months. Young adults don't play as well as old kids do.
Take care my friend.
