We set up a painting station and people got to work.
Then people returned to their tables and continued as Maria walked around.
Here's a look at a couple more letters. You'll notice that the layouts all look the same. We had preprinted a classic medieval grid (13 x 22 inch sheet size) so everyone could jump right in to the fun part.
When we traveled to museums and mansions, we rented a trolley. After visiting the Museum of American Illustration we went to a beach for lunch. After a walk on the beach, we returned to IYRS.
Bette Abdu snapped this picture of us on the trolley. Think we're having fun?
