A very artistic summer

All over sudden I am embarking on several artistic adventures. This Sunday, in addition to having my scarves for sale at the market, I will be participating in a 4 hour Paint Off, where local artists will paint at a downtown location while onlookers enjoy our work coming to life. Once finished, the works will be judged and awards given out, and then they will be auctioned off.
Then, starting Monday, I will embark on a six week electronic imaging art class, which will use photoshop, some kind of animation program and dreamweaver to teach us how to draw, animate and make websites. The class meets daily for two and half hours, so I am worried about how it will clash with my work schedule. I hope it will work out ok.

that sounds like such fun! is the paint-off going to benefit a charity? 4 hours doesn't seem like much time. do you have an idea what you will do?
i am very jealous!

In the program it actually said it would be only an hour, which in my opinion would have been much more fun! I mean anyone can paint something good in 4 hours, but 1 hour that is cool! I have no idea what I will be painting yet though, and I think they don't provide easels so I am not sure how I will get around that! 50% of the profit will go to the organizers of the festivities. The whole thing is just one small activity part of a week's celebration. Any ideas on what I should paint? I can use a picture I think, or bring something to paint, or I can paint downtown I guess...

maybe You can paint something good in an hour--i'm just getting started in 4 hours!
I think painting downtown would be lovely. but i also think the others will be likely to do the same. if you can bring a picture, how about one of your favorites from St. John or Brazil? you should be able to rig up an easel. at worst, find something to prop your feet on and use your knees!
