Tonight was a very important night. Both Harrison and Hudson take art classes at a kids' art studio called Van Grow and tonight they got to take part in Gallery Night, which is an annual event down in the cultural district.
Harrison is in a Boys Only art class that meets once a week, and Hudson and I go to a Mommy and Me painting class once a week. Tonight Harrison's art work was on display, so we all went to see everything. He chose to display one painting of Alvin the Chipmunk, and one of Boba Fet (a Star Wars guy, if you're like me and have no idea). The owners, Maarten and Hanna Vanderstoel (who we have quickly grown to love), did a great job. All the kids' art work was displayed wonderfully, they had fun projects for the kids to do (check out their cool hats and sunglasses) and there was a cupcake-making station (Hunter was especially loving that!) We had so much fun!
If you have kids, you need to check out their website (see the link above). Mr. Maarten and Mrs. Hanna are SO GREAT with the kids, always have fun ways to spark their creativity...the boys are always so excited to go, and very sad if we have to miss. They offer weekly classes throughout the Fall and Spring, as well as weekend workshops, spring break camps, summer camps~ so fun! Those of you who know me well know of my love for all things artsy and creative, so it is important to me to encourage my boys to love it as well. So far, so good.
