MAY WORKSHOP, After School

Thursday, May 25 and Friday, May 26, 3:30 - 5:00 p.m.


FLOWER ART -- This workshop encourages kids to paint in the style of a famous artist, Georgia O’Keeffe, while using expressive flower shapes.  Students apply imagination and props to capture an artistic expression.  Texture will add a visual interest through flower patterns, forms and shapes.  Blooming fun!      

These two-day workshops offer artistic expression, where kids experience and develop awareness of art elements -- Line, Shape, Form, Color, Texture, Space and Value.   This painting workshop is intended to inspire kids to grab their toolboxes and get busy making art.  As the kids create art, they tend to paint as a process, and allow their expressions to show in a natural way.  All materials are provided.
