The Art of Creating Together

Saturday afternoon we adventured to Art at the Bodega in Washington, Illinois. Upon entering we find beautifully painted ceramics on display and a smiling employee. He greeted us with a smile and walked us through the steps to create our masterpiece. My son and daughter-in-law invited me to tag along and enjoy the experience with their family.

It was both relaxing and fun to watch each choose a piece to make his or her own. My grandsons enjoyed all the color choices and paintbrush selection the most. We each chose our piece and shared a table to paint and visit. Ben chose a dinosaur, Malachi chose a dragon, Emily a polar bear and Martin an owl with a hat.

We spent several hours together laughing, talking and painting. Each of us taking care of the boys and helping them to paint their pieces. The energy here is amazing. Nearly every table was filled with a family sharing time and creating. A special place. My son discovered he can take his incomplete piece home and come in during normal business hours as often as needed to finish. He loved the at no extra charge and anytime. Our pieces will be glazed and fired this week for pick up Saturday.

I took several pictures of our afternoon to share our moment. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and look forward to our next adventure at Art at the Bodega. To all at Art at the Bodega that made this afternoon possible, thank you! We appreciate all of you!

Until next time, keep creating and enjoy the journey.

Sincerely,

The Mileurs
