Canvas Painting with Tanya "You Are the Artist!"

Painting, mentoring, bonding with art & BBBSCI.

A few years ago I got to teach 50 "Bigs" and "Littles" to paint "Red Forest". They called it a night of "Meal & Masterpiece". Clever! Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana invited their guests to paint with a catered Fried Chicken meal. I was honored to be the art teacher to this amazing group.

If you have ever considered being a "Big", I highly recommend it. I was in the program, and still mentor my "Lil Sis", who is now a mom, college grad, and medical assistant. She was just a tiny 6th grader when we met. Without knowing it, she was preparing me to be a better mom (and person) too!

Most of my painting parties are geared toward adults. But this time I got to teach a mix of kids and adults. They even fed me their yummy chicken dinner! Check out our group photo. You will see lots of smiles (including mine!).

Have a great day! #Bebigforkids
