Two years ago I wrote about my daughter Miss M and how she's always creating something or other with her hands. Some things never change, and it's time for an update-- especially after her summer spent drawing and painting at the Gage Academy where there were countless hours spent with paper, pencil, & charcoal under the classical tutelage of Tenaya Sims, and with canvas & oil paints via the skilled teachings of contemporary artist Kimberly Trowbridge . Today is the final day to see two pieces by each of the 10 teen artists involved (hanging in the 1st floor corridor) at SAM. I need to get there myself asap!

The Gage Academy holds these courses every summer, yet there are other classes to be taken in the fall, winter and spring. Be sure to check them out if you know teen artists in and around Seattle. Their teaching talent is of the highest caliber, and I am always impressed by the knowledge Miss M takes away with her.

I look forward to what is to come in the next few years! Seattle is such a fantastic city for creative minds.
