Investigate the photography of Bill Lyons in the galleries, then make a list of words that describe how you feel and what you see. Use these words to create a Haiku, then illustrate your poem with ink and watercolors.
From first dates to golden anniversaries, every inch of Central Park (the subject of Bill Lyons photography exhibit) has facilitated some stage of romance for more than one hundred years. We'll take this inspiration to make flower bouquets from recyclable materials.
Choose a painting from the Mini Masterpiece exhibition, select a l" section that appeals to you and magnify it into a large drawing with colored pencils. We' II see who can match the drawings to the paintings at the end of class!
Choose a painting from the Mini Masterpieces exhibition and sketch it on cardstock. Then use colored yarn to replace the brushstrokes. You'll learn how colors interact beside each other and how objects are broken down into simple shapes.
