This morning we started out with coffee and egg sandwiches from the Sidewalk Cafe in downtown New Braunfels. I was truly taken with a full collection of abstract and colorful artwork on old glass. The sign posted next to the work specifically noted: “Don’t Touch.” Darn.
We were greeted by early risers in the classroom upon arrival at the Art League as we set up for the last day of class.
At lunch today, Judy and Vic dove an hour and a half to say hello! Judy took my first Texas based class in Houston and then again in Atlanta. She and Vic have stayed in touch via Facebook and have become good friends. We three enjoyed lunch mid day at McAdoos Seafood which was located in the old US Post Office. What a great atmosphere!
The last afternoon of class involves “Show And Tell” or a critique, where each person puts their piece up on the easel at the front of the room and we talk about what works and what could use improvement. This is a good way for each student to learn from their classmates.
This small town boasts a huge heart. Everyone here has been nothing but friendly and accommodating. We’ve met so many lovely people, smiling, helpful and courteous. On the way back to our condo I snapped yet another shot of a unique store front. I really love the fact that this little town offers so much nostalgia.
The New Braunfels Art League has already asked me back next year. We compared notes and decided on October of 2016 so stay tuned for an announcement and registration information. You will really LOVE the small town charm of New Braunfels, TX.
And I hope you’ll enjoy ripping and glueing too.
