After School Program!!!!

IMG_20150630_125801 Ben Pringle Age 6 Ben created his own personal gallery at home! He created beautiful art works in the Monday after school class. Art that was inspired by artists such as van Gogh, Cezanne, Klimt and Didier Triglia……above you can see how he has proudly displayed them. The young artists in the Monday program contributed so much to the class with their unique imagination and joyful spirit. image1                           image2                                                                     William Greer Age 8                                                            Julia Greer Age 6 Above are pencil and marker drawings by two of our  artists in the Monday after school class . William and Julia created these portraits based on ‘Art Nouveau’ artist Gustave Klimt’s ‘Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer.  Students were encouraged to look at this and other art works by  Klimpt through a magnifying glass and explore all the intricate shapes and vibrant colours , most often encased in gold ,that he used in his paintings. The result of this project was stunning as each student created their own unique mosaic-like  drawing full of exciting movement of patterns and colour. The students have been learning the importance of balance and contrast in their compositions whether working in abstract or still life. These portraits are testament to how they have learned to apply simple rudiments while still exploring the depth of their imagination. We love our moms and dads!!! 20150530_142315 (2) Acrylic Painted Clay Tile by Eric Childerhose
