In the spirit of Halloween, we in the #fwmoa #studio are thinking about the idea of transformation and disguise. We created our own mask inspired by Karl Zerbe's Girl with Blue Mask. Will your mask be happy or sad? Strange or spooky?
Today in the #studio we felt like staying in the lines, so we went to look at Susan Janow's exhibition, now on display at #fwmoa, to get inspired by grids!
Today in the #studio we're cleaning up! Inspired by Louise Nevelson and her use of found objects, we dug through our trove of things to create mystery "treasure boxes" like the ones collected by Dorothy Gillespie. See how here:
Today in the #fwmoa #studio, we celebrate centennials! Local fashion designer Bill Blass would have turned 100, and, in 2023, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards will! An Award recipient, we celebrate with a weaving project worthy of a Bill Blass dress.
Here in the #fwmoa #studio, the long, light-filled days of summer and turning shorter and cooler. Inspired by a glass vase from our new glass wing, we decided to play with the last of our summer light and make fish (or any animal) suncatchers!
This week #fwmoa educators were inspired by abstract art, in particular, the collages of Carlos Mare, now on display. See how they reused old artworks to create something new, just like Mare!
Today in the #studio we're inspired by the beautiful blooms of summer inside the museum, so, we’ll explore another way to bring the outdoors in: flower pounding! Learn how in this #saturdaystudio!
It may be hot now but it won't be for long! With June already flying by we're thinking of long summer days and cooler nights that require a blanket, or quilt. Learn to make a tie quilt in this #saturdaystudio!
Today in the #fwmoa #studio we decided to use ourselves as inspiration. Like the self-portrait by Paul Valadez, we created our own stencil to learn more about what makes us look like us! Learn how to make your own stencil selfie in this #saturdaystudio.
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.
