Julia and Lucy attended the Tuscarawas Philharmonic Performing Arts Chorus Camp in June.

Their capstone performance was on my birthday, which we got to enjoy with our very best friends.

Look at all our kids together! They could grow up to be the next Arcade Fire or something.

Summer means marching band for Julia and it gets intense in July. That’s when Lucy took some art classes.

Summer art classes

She learned to make amazingly useful things from t-shirts and a whole lot of art from recycled items in a Trash to Treasure class. And she took a Create Your Own Character class where she made an incredible Dipper puppet.

Lucy just finished two summer art classes: Build Your Own Character and Trash to Treasure. These are her favorite pieces from each one.

Julia and Lucy are both very creative kids. When they aren’t making music, they’re making art and I was so glad they got to explore those things a little more this summer.
