The Arts Day presentation at Southside Elementary School here in Versailles went very well. There were 28 artists or groups each set up in a separate classroom, presenting all different kinds of 'the arts', from basket weaving to music, drama, woodworking, painting, and fabric arts. And more. Random classes were selected to visit each presentation. I had 6 groups come to mine, from kindergarteners to 5th graders. They listened well and had lots of good questions. I had scrambled for a couple days to make up the parts for several variations of each of two different patterns, so they could have a little hands on, experimenting with color combinations, etc. Each group only had a few minutes for my presentation, and questions and answers. My assigned helper for the day was Ashley, and she was a very good hostess. She is in the 5th grade. Everyone was friendly and appreciative, I enjoyed the day, and would do it again next year.
Now, to return the dolls to the store, that I took from there (I took a lot to show a variety of styles) and then to tidy up my neglected house. Yardwork was the first priority earlier in the week. (Check out the photos blog, link at bottom of page).
