Painting at Whet Your Palette

Katherine Scholtz

I went to Whet Your Palette to paint a picture with my favorite tutor, Marianne Humphries.  Before we went we ate lunch together at Down Syndrome of Louisville.  I made a picture of a unicorn on a canvas with acrylic paints.  I will give the picture to my niece, Olivia, for her birthday.  I enjoyed painting.  It was very calming and very relaxing.  I really want to go back there again sometime soon!
