I have been given such a wonderful honor – I am just bursting with pride! Under the Art Enrichment program, which is a PTA sponsored art program where the students all study an artist and then create artwork based o the work of that artist…. I was the artist they studied for November/December of 2012. This program reaches every student in every class at Great Falls Elementary – from Kindergarten through Grade 6.
They created a video of me, talking in my studio, and showing my materials and process to the kids. Then, the parents led the art activity – which as you can guess – involved using layered paper to create “painting with paper” artwork! The theme was trees, and they created layers of paper to add dimension and perspective. The work that was created was absolutely wonderful!
