What’s up in the art room? (February 2021)

Check out some of our current projects happening in the art room and how they’re made!

Students worked on special pieces for a youth art show at the Ward Museum this month. The theme for the show is “Inspiration from Isolation”. We utilized picture frames to become a “window frame” and students created reverse glass paintings to show what was out, or in, their window, with an emphasis on how their view (or the viewers) may have been changed or inspired this past year. The show is open to students on the Delmarva peninsula in Pre-K through 12th, for more info visit: https://www.wardmuseum.org/learn-explore/education/student-art-show/

So far this month we also had fun holding virtual Creative Science, Feed the Birds & Let’s Upcycle! Students learned all about different types of bird beaks, made their own bird feeder and learned about a trash timeline and created an up-cycled piece of art in the style of Louise Nevelson from found objects! We have more Creative Science lessons coming up – visit the link for more details! https://www.eventbrite.com/o/in-the-art-room-30616503746

Classes are back in session this month after taking a break for the Holidays!

The first project students are working on this session is for a youth art show at the Ward Museum. The show is open to students on the Delmarva peninsula in Pre-K through 12th. The theme this year is “Inspiration from Isolation”. Check back next month to see all their awesome pieces of artwork!

Last session students worked on more painted panels that are hung during the winter months at the Tyaskin Wharf. These are the newest panels on display at the wharf! The panels are a collaborative effort between students of all ages! Panels will eventually go up for auction and money raised will be donated to the Tyaskin Wharf.

This month is also the start to virtual Creative Science lessons! A partner program with UMES, where youth will learn about a science topic and create a piece of art related to it! You can register here!

Prepping for grab & go kits and creating instructions as well as making example projects for upcoming classes and posts have been in full swing this January!
