Art Camp that Makes you SMILE!

If one stopped in to see the studio this week... it was buzzing with colorful paint and happy girl chatter and singing .... And one would smile just seeing the very sight of happy paintings and happy girls! Art camp was so special! Loved being with these girls and seeing their super creative minds work and their art talent shining out like sparkling stars!

"The Lord your God is with you. He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you. He will quiet you with His love. He will rejoice over you with singing."  Zephaniah 3:17

With each camp, we have a verse for the day and I always use Zephaniah 3:17 for one of the days because my hope and prayer is that each girl will feel God's song and feel God's delight as they create their beautiful pieces of art work.  I love to see the girl's minds and hearts in motion as they sit before their canvas... paint and brush ready to start their work.  They are so eager and excited and have eyes full of sparkle.  They are truly reflecting God because they are creating and being like their Creator God!  It's so fun to be a part of.  These girls inspire me.. they show me more about being free and using imagination and new ways of mixing color.  Love how they are uninhibited and have that freedom to create straight from their heart and imagination.  I call it pure happy art!  It's a blessing to be a part of these art camp days!  Each piece of art that was made was beautiful... and the girls' hearts are even more beautiful because I loved listening to their stories behind the paintings. I heard so many sweet stories!   I felt God's warmth and smile these days. It was full and rich and happy. Loved having Rosie be a part of camp for the first time.  ( Even though she had to share her mommy). Loved having my mom come and help.  Loved making new friends and seeing old friends.  Thankful friends could come from different states.... Tennessee and Texas!   Wish I could have a video to share more about camp..... maybe some day!
