Program description

Students will get inspired by artists who combine words and paint then build their own multi-layered paintings. A free-flow writing activity will inspire final works that integrate poetry, symbols, vivid colors and expressive gestural strokes. Students will express their emotions, make statements and/or tell personal stories in their original paintings. A classroom set of canvases will be provided for this program.
