Kids' Art Summer Camp

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , , , , , | Posted on 12:59 AM

Kids enjoy the opportunity to create their own arts and crafts when they're out of school for summer. Here are some of the images from the Blu' Bisque's Summer Camp that I taught during Summer months of 2014 (June 2014 - August 2014), along with images of the Fashion Camp, co-taught with Wintter Moto of PLRG. The kids enjoyed the art and fashion projects and were a delight to work with all Summer long!

Abstract Musical Instruments

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , , , , , | Posted on 9:03 PM

Hello, Everyone! Today's images feature an abstract painting of musical instruments, painted by these ladies. The ladies are relatives/sisters that wanted to take a painting class, together. They intended to make it a 'Canvas Over Cocktails' experience, however they forgot to bring their cocktails. So, it became a 'Canvas Over Cocoa' class (which they thoroughly enjoyed) with hot cocoa, marshmallows & cookies we had available for the Creative Kids classes.

You can see the demo painting, that I painted, on a high-boy table in the background of the images. It was a delight to teach these ladies how to re-create this painting, by first showing them how to sketch the instruments onto the canvas with pencils. As you can see for yourself, they did an excellent job of painting this abstract of musical instruments!

'Date Night' - Painting Abstract Roses with The Olivaris

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , , , , , , , | Posted on 1:54 PM

Hello, Friends!  Today's featured image is of a delightful couple, The Olivaris, who participated in a class that turned out to be for the two of them, exclusively, and their works or art!  I met them during this painting class as I was filling in for another newly wedded artist-instructor.  As you can see we painted an abstract rose.  This is a painting I'd loaded to the Blu' Bisque's calendar (in my Website Designer role, there) earlier in January.  The Olivaris saw it on the calendar and chose to come on that day.  How fortuitous for all of us! 

Although the painting is an abstract rose, we noticed, during class, that it is easy to see other forms in the paintings as well.  Often, that's the beauty of abstract art.  Furthermore, the original painting is black, white and grey.  However, I added browns, reds and gold to my rose, while the Olivaris added the colors you see, below.  Mr. & Mrs. Olivari took this class as a part of their couple's activities which they planned together, so as to add even more joy and delight to their obviously blessed marriage.  I thoroughly enjoyed painting with them,  and listening to them chat with the Blu' Bisque's owner (my sister). 

By the way, both of the Olivaris are talented entrepreneurs, located in the Atlanta, GA area.  She's a talented Baker and he's a talented Web Developer; be sure to check out their websites and let them know where you 'heard' (read) about them!  Aren't their abstract roses, beautiful?  I think they both created beautiful paintings, and a beautiful memory!

Kids' Art on Canvas, Hot Cocoa & Crackers

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , , , , , , | Posted on 11:13 PM

Hello, Everyone!  Here are a few images of the classes for kids (with their parent(s) that I've taught at the Blu' Bisque, in 2014 & 2015!  These little artists were quite confident with a clear idea of what they wanted to paint on their canvases!  I think the art these little students created is beautiful!  Their parents enjoyed watching their little ones engage so fully in the artistic process, as I always do, too. Stay tuned for news about upcoming art classes with me, Michelle Boddie!

3 They should have known that all these things ~ which they took to be gods and delighted in ~
were much less beautiful than the ONE who rules them all. The Creator of beauty itself created them.
