Lila's Art Show

 This year, Lila was fortunate enough to be included in an art class that was sponsored by the Erickson Center for the Arts.  It was a class intended for fifth graders (Lila is in fourth grade) but there was extra space and the Fifth grade teacher knew how much Lila loves art so she was offered a space.

Duncan scratches his head, bewildered by it all....

Linda Tucker, of Newberry taught the six week course.  Each week was themed around a different painter and style.  The kids learned about the life of the painter and the style in which they painted and did their own painting in that style, in various mediums.

This is Lila's painting of our family friend Rachel Mills in Picasso style.

Lila's rendition of Van Gogh's "Starry Night" (one of my favorite paintings).

Not sure whose painting style this one is modeled after but I like it!

Georgia O'Keefe, a la Lila.

Lila won the young artist award for this painting.

It has a bunny in it!!!

Free form colored pencil of her favorite subjects.

The show was held at the Erickson Center and we had a potluck dinner prior to the public arriving.  It was a wonderful experience for Lila and the other children in the class.   There isn't an art teacher on staff at school so this was nurturing for the soul to be sure.


  1. Wow. Lila is very talented. What an awesome opportunity and program. Very impressive artwork.

  2. I must say, I love Lila's Starry Night more than Vincent's...and her Georgia O'Keefe flowers...and the blue ribbon rabbit with red/orange Congratulations, Lila !! You sure shine !!!
