Our painting classes are a lot of fun! I’ve been working with a lot of Girl Scout Troops and am also at the Grayslake Park District and Lake In The Hills starting next year. If you have a group of kids who would like to paint the characters and learn about the meaning of their trait, let’s talk soon. Perhaps you’re having a Birthday Party, a Scout Troop, a Leadership Group, a family event? We’d love to join in.

Have yourself a very Merry Christmas and remember that a child is listening to what you say, watching what you do and wanting to be just like you.

Be of good character!
