Beat The Heat: Painting With Water

Beat The Heat: Painting With Water

We left the art room carrying buckets of water and brushes with a desire to be outside. Temps were in the high 80’s inside and out and after a full day at school, the Art Club was ready to shake off the heat. So we took our creativity for a walk outdoors. Initially we were […]
