What's your word? For 150 kids!

We have really had a great year at the studio!  Just this week, I was honored to have SIX speaking engagements in 4 days.  And we are working with adults, kids, and corporations.  


These pics are from a fun day we were asked to spend working with 150 kids from a local elementary school.  Yes, I said, "ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY"!  Suzy went on behalf of the studio and facilitated this activity.  The kids were given a brief little talk on their word of the summer, and each were told to think of the work that they felt represented what they wanted to be, focus on, or do more of over the summer. 

I love how they turned out.  I especially love that we were able to preserve each of their sweet little unique handwriting on their canvases.

The days after the retreat... Miss Pat.

This pic was taken the morning after all the art retreaters left to go home.  The girls were up and dressed for school.  So, of course, it was time for the #grovesgirls pic!  I wonder how many I have by now!

So, although the ladies left, I had one gem who stayed behind.  Miss Pat is a beautiful lady who came down to the retreat from Columbus, Ohio.  She decided to stay a few extra days so we could mastermind a little, discuss ideas, and even consider collaborate on the writing of a book.
