I’m a juggler

I’m a juggler.
And as usual I’ve got so many balls in the air that I’m flitting around and hopping from one foot to the other, trying to keep them in synch!

Art Camp ideas have shifted from the back burner where they’ve been simmering for weeks. The themes are starting to take shape, focused on summertime subject matter and Master Artists.

Some Plan A ideas for the EXPLORE EUROPE! format:

SPAIN: Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida/ Museo Sorolla in Madrid/sunny beach paintings/A Walk on the Beach + (?) tile work in Barcelona by Gaudi

SWEDEN: Carl (and Karin) Larsson/National Museum of Stockholm + CL home in Sundborn/family, home and garden/Flower Window/Crayfish Season, Veranda, The Falun Yard, Lisbeth Fishing, Lisbeth and Peonies, The Study Corner, In the Punishment Corner, etc.

HOLLAND: VanGogh/VanGogh Museum Amsterdam/Sunflowers, Yellow House, Yellow Chair, Bedroom + (?)his friend Cezanne (geometric shapes; brilliant thick paint)

ITALY: Leonardo’s Drawings & Inventions/Nat’l Museum of Science & Technology Milano/Sketch of a Horse, Flying Machines

FRANCE: Claude Monet/Musee d’Orsay Paris/Boating at Argenteuil, Field of Poppies, + (?)Still Life with Flowers and Fruit (Getty Museum)

Always exciting to see how God orchestrates the various components and enables me to pull together Lesson Plans, usually at the 11th hour!
