Some artists, like Heady O’Beil, work in multiple styles and cross the boundaries between abstract and representative art. After surveying the artwork in the gallery, create a three-panel artwork transforming an object from realistic to abstract.
Make a one of a kind holiday decoration. Draw two-dimensional characters and scenery and then give them movement by attaching to weighted bottle caps.
Paintings at Sea. Travel through the Thomas Hart Benton exhibit that focuses on his experiences in the Navy. Inspired by his naval paintings and illustrations create a seascape painting.
We love functional art at the Hoyt, so this February design stamps to use on a tote to show off and carry their favorite things.
