Girls & Hearts Birthday Party

   When asked by my friend to host an "art party" for her daughter's birthday, I was a little unsure. Sure I've been teaching camps and classes for awhile, but this was 7 eleven year olds revved up on a Friday night!  Being close to Valentine's Day, I chose a graphic heart theme. Making a template to trace on an 11 x 14 canvas, and using 1 inch foam brushes with premixed acrylic paints made it easier. I also had a variety of stencils for them to try and graphic patterns to inspire them. It was a high energy party, the girls were fabulous and they each created an original piece of art to take home.

 Notice there's only one red heart....
