Glad you found us! 

I don't ski, I don't drink craft beer and I don't have a dog, but by golly I am a real Colorado native girl.  So now you can still believe in unicorns!  Here's my ode to motherhood, you know because all of us bloggers write like we were the first, only and last mama out there.

Redline Young Artists Fall Session: Installation Part 2

Redline Young Artists Fall Session: Installation Part 2

Here are photos of the second class in the three-part series of the fall session, RedLine Young Artists, which focused on Installation art. Unfortunately husband and I went out of town during the last class of the session and we couldn't see how it made sense for anyone to come and transport Remy to and from the class while we were out of state, so she missed the final day with the big reveal of all of the classmates artwork installed into ONE BIG PIECE and a pizza party to celebrate.  I am still bummed about her missing that...

She had such an incredible time this session with RLYA, and especially her new friends, just look at her below painting RIGHT NEXT to that little girl!  Remy HAD to move her artwork right beside this young girl whom she admired so she could paint next to her!  So sweet!  Remy loves to make friends with older girls and after her parent/teacher conference today, apparently she is going to be the girl who "organizes all the parties."  Apparently her social skills are strong.

Her fine and gross motor skills are on display here too!  I was such a proud mama watching her balance that plate of gloppy wet paint WHILE holding a long paintbrush in her other hand!  Pretty impressive coordination for a two year old!  At least I thought...  In this particular class, the kids started with story time again, and then toured the gallery and views one resident artists' work which used triangular shapes to create a 3D piece.  The kids came back and found long tubes of rolled newspaper that they could tape together into HUGE diamonds!  The class centered around shapes, especially the triangle and diamond figures.  Remy FINALLY got to attempt the kiddy scissors with some help from the instructors and then they painted the structures they built.  They also used straws which were inserted into each other to add and adorn.

I was able to attend class with just Remy this time, evident by more photos, and clearer.  We had such a wonderful experience with RedLine Young Artists' series, and give BIG thanks to Bianca and Daphne for allowing us to join in and get our hands messy. We hope these classes continue and look forward to spring!

Remy is wearing an H&M sweatshirt from last year, time to pass on to Arlo, (look at those cropped sleeves), messy bed head, leopard sweatpants from Walmart, and Nike Kostons.  This is the look you get when you have to wake a sleeping toddler on a Saturday morning so you don't miss art class!  Sort of looks like what a collegiate art major would roll out of bed in too, right?
