Visual Arts: Artists & Animals (Intro)

with Alex Fischer


Agesfor students entering Kindergarten through 2nd grade

This unique art program will explore the animals themes of famous artists, with students making their own creature creations using the techniques and media of the greats! We'll make use of a variety of materials and mixed media, from painting to clay and beyond. First we'll investigate Eric Carle's animal themed collages and emulate his painted paper and collage techniques. Then participants will explore the works of Laurel Birch, using her colorful stylized cat paintings and jewelry as inspiration for their own creations.
