I have enjoyed reading your blog this morning - your paintings are beautiful! I am also interested in learning more about the workshops you do with kids. I am also an artist who does watercolor journaling and I have been asked to give a workshop to kids 8-12 yrs old at a nature camp this summer. I am interested in making this a fun and rewarding experience for them and wondered if you had any words of wisdom or advice for me. Thanks!
