Hey Akron Artworks! This showed up on my Facebook memories today... So figured I'd share. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thought you'd enjoy knowing I love this fun, little painting! ๐Ÿ˜Š Can't wait to have more creative times in your studio! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐ŸŽจ
Hereโ€™s our silhouette project! Thanks for the suggestion! We had fun! Used popsicle sticks and glitter foam paper.
So after the Monet class we were supposed to paint an impression of a Monet painting. Here's my take on Monet'h House of Parliament paintings. He did several of these & I used them all as references!

Because of you we love this artist. My daughter attended your After school class at Arrowhead. We may have to take a little road trip!
Come out to the show
Thank you so much, Micah, and Akron Art Works for such a fun evening! Really enjoyed learning about Van Gogh... (Vinnie๐Ÿ˜‰! ) and then being creative and painting our own interpretation! Great time!! ๐Ÿ‘ ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘
I am looking to sign my daughter up for a class that starts monday. I am trying to find out if i have to get supplies for her or does Akron ArtWorks supply it?
Thank you for hosting a WONDERFUL 8th birthday party!!! My daughter and her friends had so much fun splatter painting, ink blowing, and playing games. If you can measure a successful party by how messy the kids got and how much giggling/laughter occurred, then we hit the jackpot! =) Your staff was helpful and professional and made celebrating my daughter's birthday so easy!
