Street Art

This past weekend, I was the featured artist at a local arts festival, and I invited my students to stop by and come see the other side of their art teacher!

Luna Art

I was so happy when a handful of them actually came! They got to bring art into the real world by becoming street artists, and drew on the sidewalk.

What an awesome day these ladies were able to experience the life of an artist, and express themselves for everyone at the festival to see!
