Julie Moon of NorthWest Arizona Builders Association (left) and Kathey Hutchings of M.Y. Art Studio put the finishing touches on a Dr. Seuss-themed playhouse Thursday morning at the studio. The 10-foot-tall playhouse is being raffled off by NWABA to raise money for community charities and its organization costs. NWABA President Ben Horn of Double Horn Construction and NWABA members built the playhouse and students at M.Y. Art Studio painted the Dr. Seuss characters. Several local organizations and businesses donated supplies. NWABA will be at the Home and Garden Expo this Friday-Sunday at the Mohave County Fairgrounds. NWABA will deliver the playhouse to the home of the winner of the raffle if needed. (JC AMBERLYN/Miner)

I'm really proud of my students from M.Y. Art Studio. This was a collaborative effort of young Artists ranging in ages from 8 – 17. When NWABA offered M.Y. Art Studio this opportunity, my students jumped at the chance to let their artistic talents shine. Together, they came up with the theme (via a text voting session to include all their friends and family). After the decision was made, the research, planning and drawing commenced. The process culminated with the freehand sketching and painting of the characters. Everyone pitched in to complete this fabulous playhouse! It’s the size of a spare room! Ben Horn, who was responsible for its construction, showed his talented craftsmanship and out did himself. For those who may discount art as mindless and unimportant the creative process in the visual arts teaches more than just coming up with a pretty picture. It encompasses the whole brain in the learning process and builds skills relevant to future life-skills. Please Gregg, take as many pictures as you would like to give these wonderful young artists all they credit they deserve. They were not mentioned in the caption, and in my opinion, they really deserve credit. We always hear of the negative things our youth today is involved with, let’s praise them for the good they can do.

That's really cool I can't wait to see it. I'm going to take pics of it if that's alright and put them on my Facebook.
