Grandchildren take art class

image imageThe boys had a fun learning experience @ Michaels arts & crafts store.  For a small fee of $15 each the boys enjoyed a 2 hour acrylic art class.  The paints were not included & were a little expensive. Grumbacher acrylics were on the supply list along with brushes & palette knife.  They shared the paints to cut back on expenses but now have supplies needed if they want to take another class.  They did a great job!
