Party like an art star

Scenes from a seven-year-old's birthday party.
Seventeen kids descending upon Canvas, a studio where an artist guides the students through a simple painting lesson.
A break for cake...
... then more painting. Little or no blood spilled... just paint.
Unfortunately, we couldn't convince The Boy he could just paint over his minor mistakes. He defaced what he'd done and then asked me to throw out the canvas.
sigh Guess I need to learn how to help him unlearn the perfectionism.
No worries. The other kids took home their canvases, and The Boy took home seventeen presents. That child is feeling no pain.
