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?
If you took a stroll down Main Street last week, Elephant Ear and Lemon Shake-Up in hand, you probably saw the #fwmoa annual Chalk Walk. Let's explore chalk as an artistic medium, in all its forms, in this #arttermtuesday.
Where is your eye drawn...and why? In this #arttermtuesday we explore the artists use of emphasis (or lack thereof) to tell their story and get their message across to the viewer.

Characterized by their blue tonalities, cyanotype prints, which are less expensive to produce and don't require a darkroom, are making a comeback. See them on display at #fwmoa in Azya Lashelle's exhibit "Baby I Got The Blues".
