Mundo Lindo starts up again!

October 6, 2011
Mundo Lindo has started up again for the school year!
The 4th & 5th graders are 'nominated' by their teachers, and given applications to join Mundo Lindo. The class is limited to 20 kids. We had 22 registered before class...and another 9 kids showed up, applications in hand. So, we had 31 students!!

Thirty one kids. That's a record! Gee, do you think there's a need for a free after school art class? We didn't and won't turn anyone away. Look at these wonderful, talented, sweet kids!

We drew and painted in watercolors, from the birds and flowers I brought in.

Thank goodness, Tomoko Kuta, Director of the Education Department, was on hand to help, along with my husband, Don. Did I mention, 31 kids?

And, with extra paper, the kids made a little sketchbook to take home.

We have a new volunteer, Eric, the older brother of one of the students. He's in the 8th grade.

Children's art is about as precious as you can get...and you have provided happy (he)ART spaces for 31 little Muses! Bless you Jane! ♥

Jane, this is so terrific! What a great opportunity for these kids. It will be fun to follow their art in coming years - and I would suspect that they will always look back on you and Don as some mighty special people. These kids are really talented! Wish I was one of them.
