Expressive painting


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The expressive painting class was very successful this summer.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

All of the participants were very motivated to explore and complete their paintings.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone had a different idea and method as they approached their project.  Some completed their paintings while others were still in the process, but everyone grew in their skill and knowledge in the creative process.  Maybe you can join us for our next painting class!

Tie-dye


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The last day of Art Camp was tie-dye day!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone enjoyed the process of creating tie-dye shirts.

Choosing the right color is the most important part of creating a great shirt design.

Hope and Love

Students at the Willard Hope Center completed their “Love”paintings this summer.

The paintings will be sold in a silent auction at the 2015 Hope Fest on August 16.

The funds raised from the sale of the students’ paintings will go to fund activities at the Hope Center.
