Mr dear friend works with her child's school to help them emphasize art in their curriculum. They culminate their year of art projects with a final offering from each class presented in an Arts Night. During the evening an auction is held to sell the projects and fund the program. I love this idea. Anything to keep the arts alive in schools. My friend chose the offering for her daughter's class this year and commissioned me to design and burn a swing seat for the kids to color. She said they had a ball coloring in the design using oil based markers. What a great idea! I'd never heard of them before. It was a perfect medium to use for precise work on wood. I love the way it turned out. They did a wonderful job. I'm so glad that they enjoyed the process and I am thrilled to be a part of it by offering something that they can physically enjoy as well as artistically appreciate for years.
