Olivia Gray has been making art just about all of her life - she loves to paint, draw, sew, felt, crochet and make pottery.  She is talented, articulate and her instructional videos are well planned and fun to watch.
Did we mention Olivia is ten years old?

Her show Oli Art - featured on the website Big Red Hat,  gives step by step instructions on how to complete various fun projects that any kid can do.   Check out Episode 07 - Make a Felt Flower  - it's our favorite. Twin brothers Ingram and Everett love science and nature and have their own show on Big Red Hat called Discovery Twins.

Big Red Hat is a great place for kids to learn - with holidays and summer vacations around the corner this site is ideal!

Breaking Traditions is an art quilt exhibit that is in it's third year of joining forces with someone to raise funds and bring awareness to a worthy cause.   The 2010 exhibit will benefit Claudine Intner's Art Now for Autism.  In honor of Claudine's efforts to raise money for autism research, the theme for 2010 will be "in my words".  

This open call exhibit will feature 12" x 12" art quilts and is an excellent way to display your work.  There are several opportunities to win prizes and your work will travel for a year and appear in print as well as an online catalog.  Quilts are due to be received by Saturday August 21, 2010.

To learn more about this exhibit and how to participate, please visit Lynn Krawczyk's website Fibra Artysta.
