Boerne Art Waddle

11th Annual Boerne Art Waddle
May 12 – 13, 2023

Shea Daniel-Youngblood


Hi. Thank you for taking time to read this. My name is Shea Daniel-Youngblood and I am a painter living in San Antonio, Texas. I got my first set of oil paints when I was 18 and an art degree from (Southwest) Texas State University a while later. Off and on the easel since then, I started painting regularly a few years ago–jumpstarting the journey with a plein air class led by Maren Phillips. I just wanted to be a better painter and that is still my primary goal and focus. I like to travel around the city, stopping anywhere I feel pulled by a moment, or a shadow, or a stoplight.

If you have a favorite street corner, house, restaurant, bar or the like, please consider allowing me to paint it for you!

      History of Boerne Art Waddle

      Art Waddle is Boerne’s premier community art show and sale. It’s a festive outdoor event held in downtown Boerne, TX.

      The Art Waddle is part of Boerne’s commitment to the arts. It’s also part of the trend toward fun, informal celebration of painting, sculpture, glassworks, and more. People stroll Main Street at their own pace, chatting with artists, making friends and enjoying the day, perhaps partaking of a refreshment offered by one of the breweries or restaurants.

      The Waddle was created in the “Flats,” Boerne’s funkiest neighborhood. Over the last decade the Art Waddle’s growth and success has shifted the location of the event to the downtown historical shopping district.

      It’s a place for the creative side of Boerne. 
      Named after the ducks that populate Boerne’s Cibolo Creek, the Art Waddle is organized by friends of the arts and Events Off Main. All proceeds are donated to the Cibolo Center for Conservation for Summer Art Camp Scholarships. There is no admission fee to the Waddle.
