The day after we broke open the box of pastels, Serena started her art class with Mr. Tony at the Richmond Arts Centre. Her first project? Pastel with watercolour!
The kids were introduced to the works of Austrian painter and architect, Friedensreich Hundertwasser. He favoured the abstract, the decorative, vibrant colours, spirals, and organic forms.
When I saw Serena's painting at the end of her class, I really appreciate the value of a good art teacher!
