Through a study of color, form, and space, young artists will transform a variety of media into unique artscapes. Venturing into the museum for discovery trips, participants will find inspiration from artists such as sculptor Louise Nevelson, photographer Paul Caponigro, and painter Andrew Wyeth. Through guided inquiry, children will explore how these artists create their places of imagination and carry the magic of these discoveries into the studio to transform materials into their own worlds of imagination. A healthy snack will be provided, and kids should also plan on bringing a lunch along with their creativity. Instructor Kathleen Gass studied drawing and fiber arts at the State University of New York and has been an art educator for the past 20 years.
