AMERICAN GIRL Art Camp #1, Day 4

My first American Girl Art Camp was a rich experience for me and the ten lovely young ladies who participated. One highlight of the week was the tableaux we created with my granddaughter, Lauren. The well-known painting was actually exhibited at the HIGH last year: “Young Girl Reading,” by Fragonard (18th century). This master painting was executed during the period of American Girl dolls Felicity and Elizabeth.
I was so impressed with the direct observation studies these young artists executed during the tableaux session. The same giggly little girls could change gears and focus, in concentrated silence, for a serious art study! I loved every minute of this week!
