Children ages 6 to 12 are invited to join us to explore abstract art via the works of Litchenstein, Picasso, Ellsworth Kelly and Matisse, and will work through multiple stages of drawing to transition still life or animal images into abstract works. The young artists will create poem sculptures inspired by contemporary artist Saloua Raouda Choucair/ Sufi Poetry and Dada Poetry, and will discuss poetry as an inspiration for visual art. They also will learn about Dada poetry and will create their own poems via a Dada poetry game. The history of Greek vase painting will be explored as children depict their own vase scenery utilizing pastels and reactive paint. The class will wrap up with an introduction to printmaking and “Pretend Play,” reviewing paintings and providing physical and verbal interpretations of what they perceive is happening within each work.
The three day workshop is a great way for children to explore multiple facets of the arts.
Rachel graduated with a BFA in drawing and painting from the University of Southern MS, Hattiesburg. She has taught art with the North Shore Home Education Center in St. Tammany.
