It looks like this reprise class will be in FEB 2017 and we’ll call it DRAWING FOR KIDS 2.5 with a Valentine twist! Stay tuned to hear the details in soon…you know we’d love to have your young artists (ages 6 – 12 years) participate …and parents are always welcome too!

WHAZZUP, CILLYart? November CILLYart4U NEWS is here! DRAWING FOR KIDS 2 with CILLYart is coming…

WHAZZUP, CILLYart? There is so much going on right now!  TWIN TAILS: Song of the Siren (TWIN TAILS Book 2!) is now published (OCT 2016)! A week ago we finalized our TWIN TAIL 2 Book Launch Contest for Children by having a MERMAID PARTY in honor of our contest’s local GRAND PRIZE WINNERS!

Above is a collage of some of the photos taken at this special MERMAID PARTY event…but please forgive the “scary eyes” on two photos of our MER-smiles…we applied those to protect the identities of two of our young attendees! We had a great time swimming and playing with Mermaid Elena, eating “ocean-themed” snacks, getting our faces painted, playing a MER-tail game and selecting door prizes. We had so much fun…we sure hope to do this again when TWIN TAILS Book 3 makes its debut in another 1-3 years! While you stay tuned in for that upcoming event, enjoy reading the adventure of TWIN TAILS of Mason Beach (book one) and TWIN TAILS: Song of The Siren (book two)…magical adventures for young readers (7-12 years) and the whole family’s story time too!

By the way…the above contest was not just for local children! We extended it nationwide via social media, etc. Just this week, we shipped out TWIN TAILS books, T-shirts, tote bags and other small prizes out to our first, second and third place winners…most were even shipped outside of Arizona!

For the month of November, I have been invited to do another drawing class at the Mesa Public Library: RED MOUNTAIN BRANCH in east Mesa on Saturday, NOV 19th! The first one done this past summer was so much fun…that I get to do it again! It is for children ages 6 – 12 years old, definitely family friendly and it is FREE!  If you have a child or grandchild in your family that loves to draw…come on over for a bit of fun drawing, some drawing instruction, a drawing challenge…and a drawing of a few door prizes for some of our artisic kiddos too!  Check out the details on the City of Mesa Library Events page:
