Child's Play - Kids Painting A Life Portrait

A fabulous unforgettable day at Malibu's Juan Cabrillo Elementary School with students helping me do a portrait demo from life!  Thanks to wonderful artist/teacher Nicole Fisher for inviting me into her "Featured Artist Series" at Cabrillo and Dave Teel  Photography for these warm photos.

There are some very talented young artists out there and wonderful dedicated teachers like Nicole expanding their art minds which the world so needs.

To be honest, I was a bit apprehensive how it would go doing a portrait demo with such young artist but it was a blast and the kids were amazing.  Later in the day the children painted their own self portraits which was rewarding to watch - and help out just a bit. 

A day to remember.
