Art With Veronica

We are preparing for The Big Game. UTAustin plays in The Rose Bowl tonight. We are not huge football fans around here..but we gotta support Brian and Angee!

Austen has taken over the food prep for the evening. Roast, green-bean casserole, dinner rolls, all the "game food" (cheese dip, guacamole,etc.) What a guy!

Wanted to take a few moments to share some art-work from the co-op kids. Veronica Quintana has graciously worked with a couple of our kiddoes this year. She gave me a c.d. of some of their work from the Fall. Wanted to share.

The kids spent a lot of time at the fishing hole in our back-yard, so having their first attempt at water-colors be at the fishing hole seemed appropriate. Top left is by Amanda Mireles. On the right is by Austen Bates. On the bottom left is painting by Devin Van Bibber.







Next we have a first attempt of still-life with pastels on felt. Artist Devin Van Bibber below. Austen Bates on right.






Co-op was not limited to the house. Kids spent some time doing quick sketches at various galleries and museums. Below Austen, Mandy and Devin spend a morning at the Kerr Arts Center in Kerrville.
















..and we can't forget the cool guy at the awesome print-shop in Kerrville.

So from the kids and their families to Mrs. Quintana.

Thankyou.
