Amy, brilliant artist, mother of one of In This Circle's girls, spent Saturday afternoon guiding the girls through the process of designing their wall mural.
This included looking through many art books, drawing sketches, weaving ideas together, learning how to work with paint and brushes, and learning how to transfer pencil sketches to acrylic wall-painting.
The walls, in their beginning stages, are beautiful! The room, transformed!
Amy and the girls will return this-coming Saturday, to work on the next stages of their mural, which will include a bean tree, birds in nests, stars, a lake. They'll also teach me how to paint a flower on the wall, so it can join the flower garden.
