WHAZZUP, CILLYart? Drawing with Children = FUN!

CILLYart4U Drawing Class 4 Children...summer 2016

We sure had a lot of fun drawing dragons and mermaids, using simple lines and shapes to create them in my CILLYART4U drawing class this past Saturday morning at the RED MOUNTAIN BRANCH of the Mesa Public Library system! I got to see many of the illustrations of my 30+ students and encouraged them all to keep drawing and creating! We even gave out some door prizes! Will I get invited back to teach again??? I sure hope so!!!
Below is a dragon inspired by young Chloe’s imagination! Gotta love it!!!
