Meadow Glen’s Open House Celebrates Their Resident Artists

On June 1st we had the great joy of showcasing the beautiful artists we get to work with at Meadow Glen Assisted Living. Residents and visitors enjoyed our slideshow and exhibit featuring a sampling of the hundreds of paintings Meadow Glen’s residents have created in the nearly four years they’ve had me coming there. As a special added treat, attendees were given an opportunity to experience for themselves just how easy and enjoyable it is to follow our guided painting process! Two beautiful collaborative beach paintings were created that night by eight brave residents, families, staff and visitors!  

A special thank you to the Executive and Activities Directors at Meadow Glen for inviting us to be part of their Open House. Here’s to the beauty and joy their residents are bringing into our lives!

Collaborative Art by Preschoolers from Leesburg Open Arms

We made a acrylic painting of a park near their school (Olde Isaac Walton Park in Leesburg, VA).

What a joy and privilege it was to be asked to lead an afternoon painting workshop for a class of about 15 preschoolers at Leesburg Open Arms Preschool in Leesburg, VA this summer!

The image we painted is based on Olde Isaac Walton public park located walking distance from their school. We had a great time learning about different types of brushes and supplies and then each child came up one at a time to add a different part of the painting. Here we are celebrating all the hands that painted this collaborative work of art!
