A Private Tour...

Even though the weather doesn't seem to be cooperating with the calendar, spring is here and end of the school year activities are starting to signal that summer is not far away! Lexi had a piece of her art work chosen to be in the all Elementary Art Show which goes on display each spring in the community gallery for a month. This year, unlike last, we actually made it in to see the instillation before it was taken down to next make room for the High School Art Show.

Lexi had walked down with her class last week and she she was so eager to give Brea and I a personal tour of the exhibit, pointing out her favorite pieces. Scott unfortunately wasn't able to join us as the gallery hours are during the hours he's working away in DSM, so Lexi asked to make a short video to explain to him her piece.

Lexi has always enjoyed making art and spends a lot of time drawing, coloring and creating pictures to illustrate the stories she writes. She is always excited when it's art day at school and is once again looking forward to Art Camp this summer. Plus there will be plenty of sidewalk chalk coloring to be done and frequent trips to Tiny Circus work sessions. It seems as though 2009 is shaping up to be The Summer of Art!
