Se7en + 1 Went ArtJamming…

May 15th, 2013 · 10 Comments

I know – some folks are braver than others… I am not sure that I would invite this gang over to paint my walls…

We were unable to drag the youngest artist away from his brushes for a photo!!!

But the new ArtJamming Stall at the Paddocks in Milnerton knows no fear and invited us over on Saturday… Some of us couldn’t put our aprons on fast enough!!!


One person was a little timid to get going… but don’t even ask what he has been doing with the tooth paste, since he has discovered the art of mural painting!!!


Other folk had no fear of the wall and literally dove in…

And so the transformation began…


Way up high…


And way down low…


They could not stop…


Brushes and mixing…

And masterpieces…

And would you look at all this paint… magical loveliness, an endless supply!!! Wooohooo!!!!


The bigger guys had their own white wall to go on with…


And they set to work…

The work continued…


And I wandered around and got my fill of art heaven… papers galore…

Supplies as far as the eye can see… And behind the easels…


The painting continued…


And Zebras were there too…


With bags filled with…


Icy tea…


A whole new adventure… Bos Tea…

And judging from all the empty cans… I sense it was a hit all-round!!!


It took a couple of hours…


And a heap of busy-ness…


And just a little bit of mess…


And some cleaning up…


The walls were covered…


And I day say the art was Jammed…


Thank you so much ArtJamming at the Paddocks, we had a fabulous time!!!


I think we are going to need a blank wall in our house and some white wash paint every couple of weeks!!!

    Cheryl, it started off fairly quiet with a couple of kids and the parents standing around… and then slowly but surely everyone was painting everything!!! I can’t imagine that there is even one white piece of wall anywhere in the store!!! You definitely aren’t alone!!!

    We’ve been to do canvasses at the Cavendish one and I was amazed at how long my boys spent taking such care. Art Jamming is very cool! Seeing your adventure though, I think we’re going to have a go at painting our garage…. inside that is!

    Hay Debbie… I have a feeling that a lot of garages are going to be transformed this winter… I know ours is… we just need an endless supply of their fabulous paint… Can you imagine!!! Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a fabulous day!!!
