Special thanks to the musicians, King David, Chili Corder, Jill Brindel, and William Klingelhoffer, as well as Kai Roath and other Tides friends for hosting the event, providing refreshments, and supporting two years of art-making (see pictures above).

Heidi Hardin, Teaching Artist
Bio: Forty years ago, I came to California to study biology at UCSD. I took art as a minor, then got a double major in Biology and Art. I then went to graduate school at UCSD as a painter. To remember my childhood, that was stressful, I painted my family using home movies and family photos as source material. I’ve been painting families ever since from their family photos ever since in a project called The Paradise Project.
ArtSeed Statement: “ArtSeed means kids learning and having fun making art of all kinds from very sophisticated lesson plans that are connected to history—especially American History. ArtSeed means kids visiting our gallery and participating in Summer Intensive drawing and painting classes, as well as, exhibitions of their artwork and the artworks of their teachers here at Think Round Fine Arts.”
