Weathering the Storm with Visual Haiku at Art and Soul

This student was inspired by the storm outside!

The last class I taught at Art and Soul Retreat in VA Beach was after we'd learned that Hurricane Joaquin was not going to hit us. Therefore we were free to enjoy the exciting storm on Chesapeake Bay that we could see in the wall of windows in our classroom. We were inspired by haiku and also by the excitement nature provided for us to watch.

Each student had four flat birch panels to work on with collage, acrylic paint, and re-inkers. Despite this being an evening class, so short, all pitched in and created exciting and unique work. Thank you all for such a great evening!
