oil paints and ocean breezes

Our Annikah has always been a creative girl and her art skills are really taking shape.  She can easily sit for over an hour drawing, cutting, gluing, and planning her masterpieces.  She has these awesome ideas about how to make cards, draw people, tell stories through pictures, and she is always up for an "art project."  The kids in the neighborhood all say "Mama Annikah tafadhali tunaomba kufanya (please we request to do) art project" and it cracks me up whenever they ask mostly because I think they are pretty positive 'art project' is one word.  They have learned if you wanna hang with Miss Anni you do lots of art and they are super ok with that.  When I heard there was a local artist hosting a little Tingatinga art class for kids I knew it was perfect.  The fact that it was located inside the old fort of Princess Salme was just an extra bonus. She started with this.....
