More ART

5-18-12 artist's brain

Continued from Monday…..

My other ART experience last week which touched my spirit, was both energizing and exhausting at the same time. My friends Bill and Beth asked me to help with their son’s 1st grade class called “Talking Canvas”. Our topic was artist Jackson Pollack.

Bill constructed four large canvases, so there were 6 kids per canvas. I spoke a minute about product verses process and stressed that the point was just to enjoy playing with the paint and not worry how the painting turns out. Bill gave a little information about Jackson Pollack and told of an exhibit currently at the DM Art Center.

The kids did have fun and I kept busy filling the paint cups and didn’t really get to watch much of the kids in action.

Bill said I was a natural with the kids and should consider working with Art and Kids in the future.

This is the only picture of Me.... head cut off.... working at the paint station filling cups of paint.

 One of my favorite pieces.... but they really all looked similar! A bit messy but colorful and beautiful!
