It's #arttermtuesday! With how fast July moved into August, we decided to look at movement in art! How does an artist convey movement in a 2D work, and why do they use it?
Saturday Studio: Curly Creations
The #fwmoa is hosting a garden party and the studio has moved outdoors to join! Today, we'll look to Dorothy Gillespie and her 3D, outdoor sculptures for inspiration to make our own wavy, curly paper works.
Art Term Tuesday: Balance
Has the artist achieved balance? Used to create visual stability, the balancing act of balancing a composition can be completed using various techniques. Learn how, and next time you visit #fwmoa see if the artwork is stable or liable to tip over!
Treasures from the Vault: Carlos Frésquez
Mining images from past and present cultures, Carlos Frésquez creates art similar to how a rapper samples music: by mixing it all together. Here, we explore one of #fwmoa most popular prints by him: A Fairy Tale.
Saturday Studio: Egg-cellent Art
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.
Art Term Tuesday: Form
The last term in our study of the elements of art: form!
Saturday Studio: I Found my Marbles
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!
Treasures from the Vault: David Burliuk
Ukrainian-born artist David Burliuk celebrated the human in art, absorbing ideas gained in his travels to organize the Futurist movement and combine time periods in his own, often satirical, artworks.
Treasures from the Vault: Edmund Brucker
Indiana entered the Union in December of 1816. To celebrate our statehood, we're looking at a work from the #fwmoa collection completed by celebrated Hoosier portrait painter Edmund Brucker.
Treasures from the Vault: Beatrice Riese
In this #treasuresfromthevault, we explore the lacy tangle of short lines and angles that create shape and pattern in this drawing by Beatrice Riese.
