Fine Art Summer Series Wrap-Up


Fine Art Summer Series has now come to an end. After two all access programs in June, we just wrapped up our final part of the series with a four day Fine Art Intensive class. The kids had fun and so did I. We looked at artists Dale Chihuly and Georgia O'Keefe making our own projects inspired by their work. We used different mediums to make our art and played with proportions and textures. All of this was topped off with the creation of some great animal sculptures. In total a sea cow, snake, dolphin and mini fish, shark and angelfish were made over a three day period of work and it was topped off with some very interesting paint jobs as the kids let loose their imaginations. Check out the artists and their work below!
