Before my SUMMER Art & Craft event, and one of the wonderful results!

My SUMMER event at the North Beach branch of the San Francisco Public Library was tons of fun! I put out hand drawn pages in permanent ink. Children also got an individual object to color and cut out, plus letters spelling SUMMER. They then had water soluble crayons and endless stuff to stick on. The butterflies went very quickly!

I am so proud of the children’s creativity—they never disappoint! It is a privilege to work with them. See more of my events on my Art and Craft Projects page.

Here are a few photos from my preschool and 1st grade summer event at TelHi. They are coloring images from my MY DOG HENRY story. I gave them line drawings inspired by my yorkie Henry. The children didn’t need any encouragement to ignore his actual coloring. I love their individuality and enthusiasm! Download my Preschool Color Stories for free here!

SUMMER ART & CRAFT PROJECT AT NORTH BEACH LIBRARY JUNE 20

Summer Art & Craft Project at North Beach Public Library is June 20th!

Summer Art & Craft Project at North Beach Public Library is June 20th!

On June 20th at 2 pm (please note the special day and time for summer school) I am doing an Art And Craft—SUMMER event at the North Beach branch of the San Francisco Public Library. This SUMMER Art and Craft project has lots of challenges for little fingers. First they color with water soluble pastels, then paint on water to mix up the colors. After that they can stick on anything that grabs their fancy. This project has letters to be glued on spelling summer. It also has a colored cut out object to glue separately. Join us next week to celebrate summer!

These photos are from my PUPPIES Art and Craft event at the North Beach Public Library in San Francisco.

This was my first sold out event, with 40 paintings having been created. I love seeing the uninhibited freedom of smaller children. This is a labor intensive event but the children definitely make it worthwhile! The little girl pictured would have gotten up onto the table if her painting had required it!
