An Artist Worth Copying – K. Henderson

January 13, 2010

I got a phone call today from a 4th grade teacher. Each year the kids have a project. This years, it’s Contemporary American Realism. And I was picked as the representative artist. What an honor!

The kids will copy one of my paintings. The painting they chose was Apples and Stripes. Yikes! That’s quite an ambitious projects. I hope I get to see some of the paintings.

I want to wish the best of luck to Ms. Roberts class.
