You can imagine the surprise on these two young artists as they came for a nice evening out to see their artwork on the wall and enjoy dinner in Ventura. Both Syna and her brother Aayan went to the art show and walked away with a ribbon and cash award's! Now that's encouragement to keep on doing well in art class! Many of my other students took ribbons as well in pastels and in mixed media. You can see many of their art pieces and the talented art they are creating. Thank you to D.A. Davidson Investments in Ventura for making this possible to showcase the art in Ventura County.

Wow, it was so wonderful to see so many of my students at this fabulous Reception/ Exhibit on March 23, who created such beautiful artwork! They all deserve a round of applause, not just those who won. This sure had to be difficult to select the best for awards! Not all took a prize, so they should not be discouraged. I will blog on what makes a good art piece later this month. It was such a joy to meet many of your families at the event. And of course these happy faces are priceless! Overall, it takes practice and work to succeed, at art and other areas in our life.
This year there were so much more younger participants and they also were quite happy to get gifts as a "Budding Artist!". I was happy to see that those who were about ready to give up on a piece put in more time and it PAID OFF!
Many of my students created exceptional pieces for the Ventura County 2nd Annual Juried Art Exhibit where there were many entries and the competition was fierce! My students were able to take home prizes of cash or art supplies! Everyone did a fantastic job and thanks to all who participated! 🏆
19 of my students are participating in the Ventura County 2nd Annual Juried Youth Art Exhibit. What an exciting opportunity to shine in art and have a chance to win one of many great prizes! There are $3,600 in gifts and cash awards this year. Last year, many of my students won prizes and scholarships for art lessons! Crowell, Weedon, and Co. in Ventura are sponsoring this event to promote the arts in Ventura County. (Pictured our 2014 winners)
