Art Camp

When we let Audrie pick summer camp to attend this year, it was no surprise that she chose one that covered two of her favorite subjects…art and animals. She was in camp heaven drawing and meeting a variety of living creatures that not only posed as her subjects, but fed her craving to be the next Jack Hanna. She spent the week learning different shading and watercolor techniques, creating patterns and textures, and holding snakes and observing tarantulas, scorpions and hedgehogs. Oh yes, Audrie was in animal art bliss, and at the end of the week she returned with some beautiful works of art.




To say I am a proud mama would be an understatement. These works, once framed are going to take their place of prominence on the walls of our house. I can’t wait to see what this little girl has in store for her future, whether it be a career in art, or working with animals, or both.

That owl is amazing! I love the textures she's incorporated into both the torn paper and the watercolor background. The eyes have such personality. Lovely work.
