Hey Kids!

For part of this summer I was kept very busy as a day camp counselor, running the camp's art program. Though it was tiring, (as almost all work with children is), I loved teaching them new things, and it was always great seeing their results. One of my favorite things when I used to go to camp was the art classes, so when some kids said the same things about camp this year, well that was very nice to hear :)

Here are some of the kids I taught, caricatured. They're just head shots, and all smiling - whether it be in an innocent or mischievous way was determined by the time I got to spend with them in art class.

Simply Serene

One thing I like most about summer is the time spent at the cottage. Just got back from a long weekend at a friend's cottage and here's a quick watercolour/ink sketch I did of my surroundings.
