The Family Art Project - March 21

You know I can't help myself. I'm always looking for something new and creative and either musical or artsy to do. So I've come up with something that I know will be a lot of fun.

I'm calling it "The Family Art Project."



If you live in Clarksville, TN (or near by) this is the perfect opportunity for your family. I'm offering this fun time together as a family at Hilldale Baptist Church in Clarksville.


Now before you start thinking how cute it would be for the families with 6 year olds in them to paint something together, this project is perfect for families with youth, empty-nesters, and Sr. Adult couples as well as families with elementary aged children - basically any family.

We'll begin with some fun activities that will show each family a little bit about their family personality. Then we'll talk just a little about color and form and some of those kinds of artistic things. Then we'll break out the paints and brushes!


I'll have some step-by-step instructions that will guide each family in making a beautiful piece of art that will be a cooperative effort by everyone. Each family will be proud to hang this one-of-a-kind painting over their sofa or in the family room or - well, just about any place where there is room for a 30 x 40 painting.


I do have to charge for this - to buy canvases and paint. The cost will be only $40 - cheaper than a night at the movies and a whole lot more fun and you'll end up with something that will last forever. It's also my hope that you'll learn a little bit about each member of your family and make some great memories.


Call the church office if you need more information.

Lyndell,
This sounds like so much fun! What a wonderful concept. At $40 this is an amazingly affordable family event. Good luck to you. Hope to see some pics of the finished pieces!!

Aloha,

Thanks Marionette, I found a great deal with Blick Art supply on 30x 40 canvases. That helped me with the price. Plus, I don't have to make any money since working at the church is my full-time job I can offer things like this and not have to make money myself. I'll post pictures. I think it will be a lot of fun.

Now you are a dedicated minister of the kind we all need! What a wonderful idea.
