We're so egg-cited to share with your our egg-cellent inspiration for the #fwmoa #studio this week! Continuing with our foray into food, we look to Clarence Holbrook Carter's ovoid shapes to create collages.
In this #arttermtuesday, we explore the differences in both definition and perception of graffiti and street art and how cities and museums are embracing public art.
It's spud-tacular in the #studio today! Inspired by the warming weather and furry friends, we're making potato prints. Grab a potato and some paints and join us!
As National Poetry Month comes to an end, let's take a moment to enjoy our Scholastic Writing Award National Medalists in Poetry: Lucy Somers, Bazil Freuh, and Sydney Taylor.
The last term in our study of the elements of art: form!
Today in the #studio, we're spilling our marbles and using them as inspiration for some meditative artmaking. Follow along with Education Assistant Naomi Vanderleest to learn about paper marbling!
It's National Poetry Month! We're celebrating by spotlighting the poets who were nominated as American Voices in this year's Scholastic Art & Writing Awards in our region: Elizabeth Clark and Sydney Taylor. Read, or listen to them read, their poems here!
It is common for artists to intentionally borrow compositions and refashion imagery to subtly add meaning to their work. Here, we see how two contemporary artists, Barberena and Harrington, have used Michelangelo's Pietà composition.
Inspired by Indiana photographer Martina Lopez, today in the #studio we're trying her digital processes using a hands-on method to blend multiple images into one!
Are ALL black and white photographs historic? Of course not! Many contemporary artists, like John Bower, capture their images in black and white. Today in the Studio, we examine why an artist may choose to leave color behind and focus on shadow and light.
