#Wednesday #ArtClass with my awesome Elementary Kids: Days like this make me really #love my Art Class kiddos as an #ArtTeacher  little 2nd & 3rd graders blew my mind with their ‪#‎iguanas‬. We literally studied books and an encyclopedia for reference... then they came up with art like this. I like to throw in a little biology lesson about #reptiles and their #habitats. Sometimes I learn something new, too. Mallory (featured here) did great with her desert #sunset and #cactus. #TeachArt   #Learn   #ArtLessons

For my best friend's wedding:
Large chalkboard and custom Installation and chalk art by Kristy Ellis Drinkwater of Counterpart Brand & Design

Photo installation behind the bar, created using snapshots from the couple's private collection, formatted in black and white hung by clothes pins on jute twine, limbs & twinkle lights. Special moments were added to the montage like a bird's nest (symbolizing their new nest together) & deer antlers from the first deer the bride shot with the groom. Mini chalkboards peppered the branches with chalk art phrases like "our nest", "Love" and "Family". As the night rolled on, twinkle lights created a warm glow to reflect on the couple's photos.

Life is so cyclical. Birth, life, death. Elation, sadness, joy. We are made for a greater, higher and more purposeful existence. I'm thankful it does not end here. Celebrating the temporal life and eternal life of my eldest Aunt Byrl today. She lived 93 years loving her Lord. Now she will enjoy Him in His uninterrupted fullness forevermore.

Loving teaching my #artclassesforkids . Why did it not dawn on me 20 years ago that teaching wasn't just giving students something to think about... it's also about me learning from THEM! Kids are so inspiring!!!!  

First day of Art Class and it was FUN FUN FUN!! We did a little line drawing exploring the famous artist, #JuanMiro. I love how the kids responded and came up with their own masterpieces. Everyone did a fantastic job!!!

I completely understand the basis of this report. When people ask me what I do, the answer is never simple. There are multi-facets to each and every client and project. It's never a quick answer.

Agree, Agree, Agree!!! #metallics are often overlooked and they are so important to adding "coolnessl" or "warmth" to a space. A finishing touch. I agree on this idea for all types of design and art. A little bit to top it off!
