It is already September 15th, the kids have been back to school for almost a month now and The Studio has been enrolling students both old and new. This weeks spotlight artists are Abby (6th grade) and Joey (4th grade); The Song girls. We love these girls and their family. We especially appreciate that Art is clearly revered as not only a creative outlet but as a confidence builder. The Songs have often stated that the process is just as important as the product.
Abby and Joey have always been a Joy to teach. They are model students that really enjoy learning and seeing their artwork improve. They are kind, caring and thoughtful and they show other kids how to do things if we are a little backed up. We love when our students step up and take ownership of our Studio, it means they feel at home and confident, and that is exactly what we want them to be! This afternoon was quiet so I sat down and asked Abby and Joey a few questions...
