Chairville School Art Show


Tomorrow, February 4th, is the Chairville School Art Show. I normally don't enter group art shows, because for me it is just more effort than it's worth. This show is different though. Original artwork is hung at the school for two weeks. During that time, the kids get to look at all the work and copy it or create something inspired by one of the pieces. Tomorrow there is a reception for the artists, kids, parents and general public. The children's art is hung next to the art they copied. It is so much fun to see what the kids come up with and to see which pieces were the most popular. The kids really make the artists feel like celebrities! I will be doing ongoing demonstrations of my pencil and watercolor technique from 6:30 - 8:00 pm. The show is free and open to the public, so if you are local, come on down! The address is: 36 Chairville Rd., Medford, NJ 08055 and the phone number is: 609.654.9610. Hope to see you there!
