A big hill perfect for running.
I've been twice to Paint Night and while my skills are obviously lacking (and no, I won't show you my disastrous paintings) the kids are jealous that they couldn't go. Someone must have had a similar experience with their kids because Pop Up Painters was born!

Pop Up Painters is a company that teaches kids how to paint by leading them through the process. You pick the date, time, location and the painting. The one we chose was in a park in Barrhaven and the kids made their own Mini Sunset Tree painting.

Good little painters.

I was so impressed with Miss Allie. She was warm and friendly and great with the kids. There were about twelve so keeping things running smoothly was no small feat. The kids learned different techniques (dry and wet blending and stippling) and got to use different tools (a sponge, paint brushes and a q-tip) and are so stinking proud of their paintings. They want to do it again.
