Art on the Street

"I've never been a fan of painting, but ... wow." -Xavier Golden, 10/10/09

Grand Haven had its own little art competition (Grand Haven Tribune story) and celebration this weekend - spinning off the very cool ArtPrize effort in Grand Rapids. Despite the chilly weather there were 50 entries or more - here's the story of two of them. It was windy and chilly, but the kids, including friend Brandon were really troopers. Mom came soon after we started with supplies, gallery services, and the photo ops.

In the process. Xavi was definitely the main man on his and dad's, setting the scene and choosing the topic. ("You can paint the background.") Ysabela needed to paint dragons, and she and Brandon worked out the colors and composition.

Last week we had a game night with the granperes. They taught them Cheat Your Neighbor and CLR. Both the kids displayed an unhealthy interest in gambling with poker chips.

Sugar skulls are coming.
