Looking to add some (pumpkin) spice to your fall photos? Inspired by the artists featured in "The National", we decided to see how changing the box, from rectangular to square, would change our photos in this #saturdaystudio.
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.
Where does color come from? How does an artist choose their color and how have those colors changed over time? In a new series, we'll explore these questions but today we're starting with the fundamentals of color: pigment v dye.
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!
The staff at #fwmoa has spent their summer reading, so we've got some recommendations. First up: Grayson Perry's "Playing to the Gallery" which helps us look at contemporary art--a genre of art that often leaves us asking: what am I looking at?!
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.
The only portrait Lincoln purchased of himself, by Alexander Hay Ritchie, captures a moment in the historical record: the first (private) reading of the Emancipation Proclamation. What can we learn about the past and how can we apply it to the present?
