Mat Johnson checks in with a report on his second successful figure painting event for youngstesr designed to expose kids into the hobby.
In conclusion, I feel the hobby has a bright future, however it is up to us who enjoy it now to pass on and encourage future generations. Maybe some of the folks who spend thousands of hours sanding rivets and re-scribing panel lines should consider donating a few of those hours to a local museum or model building group that is encouraging kids. At the end of the day it is a hobby, and helping people who are new to it keeps it all in perspective. I am looking forward to doing more figure painting activities, and hopefully if the success of this years event is any indication will be doing so for a long time into the future.
