Hawaiian LuauAn imaginary journey to the Islands provides bright and colorful inspiration for two little surfer girls who are also neighbors and best friends - one of whom will be moving with her family back to the West Coast over the summer. Therefore, an art vacation was just the ticket for a memorable time together.
The theme for this week was a surfing trip to the Islands which highlighted our love for the ocean and things related to the beach.
