So, of course since term started art for fun has declined in numbers although 77 sessions overall in September. Today was the first day of half term locally and I had the pleasure of hosting 26 children and adults today – a figure more common in August.
A mix of ages from below school age to a gentleman with Alzheimer’s. There was such a range of topics chatted about. Where were people visiting from? Those finishing their earlier half term – where had they visited? What had families been doing since I last saw them?
Several new visitors, some following friends recommendations, others recommending the activity to friends also in town. Several families I have seen a number of times in the last year – this continuity is great as you get to know them and their likes.
Local families and visiting friends / relatives, again more frequent visitors that I am getting to know better.
Off the back of art for fun a range of my work and also art materials sold so that more drawing could be done when they couldn’t access my pens. Most of the day was drawing outside, for a period this afternoon we moved inside as it rained a bit, but it cleared up again.
Wow, that was a fun day. Here is a video I put together via Tik Tok to share the images I got to photograph.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-8473-65166cb554131' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=8473&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-8473-65166cb554131' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-8473-65166cb554131' data-title='Like or Reblog'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
