Variety is the spice of life! See how visual artists create a feast for the eyes in this #arttermtuesday post.
Saturday Studio: Folding Frenzy
Today in the #studio we're going back to basics: paper and scissors. Inspired by what's #nowonview in the #fwmoa, join us on our next Second Saturday Family Tour in June to see Dutterer's works up close! RSVP on our website.
Art Term Tuesday: Unity & Harmony
We're looking at art with good vibes thanks to today's terms and principles of art: unity and harmony!
Art Term Tuesday: Art Deco
Sandwiched between two world wars, Art Deco colored the 1920s and 1930s with geometric patterns, exotic materials, and sleek lines. See how the art movement decorated everything from vases to buildings in this #arttermtuesday.
Second Saturday Studio: Draw a Bird Day
The art museum is a veritable zoo! Today, on Draw a Bird Day, we're looking to the birds that have flown the coop onto the vases and canvases at #fwmoa. Follow along as we make a bird inspired by Art Deco from the David Huchthausen Collection.
Art Term Tuesday: Pose
Strike a pose! Understanding the body language in art offers a richer historical and cultural context to both the artist and the work. See how artists, past and present, use different poses and gestures to help tell the story of their work in this #arttermtuesday.
Art Term Tuesday: Atmospheric Perspective
An artist can use various tools to trick us when they need to transform a 2D canvas into a 3D scene. See how landscape artists like Homer Davisson and Dan Woodson use atmospheric perspective to show what's near, far, and everything in between!
Second Saturday Studio: Frametastic
Today in the #fwmoa #studio we're looking around the artwork at the frame. How does a frame help to show off an artwork? Learn how to make a frame to help your artwork shine!
Art Term Tuesday: Censorship
Censorship in the arts is a tricky topic! One artistic program, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, remains censorship free, allowing creative teens to explore difficult topics and emotions, which allows us to connect with each other.
Art Term Tuesday: Rhythm & Repetition
In this #arttermtuesday, we continue to explore the principles of art by offering another two-for-one pairing: rhythm and repetition.
