Painting with a Friend

Here's mine!

Of course I am talking when the group photo was snapped.  Anyway...  These little classes are such fun!  You get to create and take home a completed canvas in just a few hours.

We began by using a mix of browns and black to make our canvas look a bit like wood.

Next was filling in the edges to create the shape of my home state, Arkansas, along with a heart to show which area I am from.  Yep!  Northwest corner.  ;-)

If I had my lettering to do over again, I would move the bottom "home" down just about half an inch.

Then we were given instructions on highlights and low lights.  Here's my masterpiece!  ;-)

I love how we all followed the same directions, but had slightly different results.  This is one I think I could do on my own and would like to try something similar at home!  Stay tuned!

  1. Great job!! I've done this a couple of times and is so much fun! It's a great "girls' night" activity and you get to create something using a new skill. Bet you all had lots of giggles!

  2. When I was a kindergarten teacher I would demonstrate painting a subject, and then kids would make it their own. I loved the individualized results. - Margy

  3. So cute! I've been to a few of these paint nights and they are usually so much fun.
