In this Halloween workshop we looked at artist YAYOI KUSAMA's amazing body of work and created our own dotted pumpkins!
Giuseppe Arcimboldo was an Italian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of objects such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books.
After viewing a slideshow on the artist and his work, we created portraits by collaging cutouts of food and flowers in the style of Arcimboldo!
"INSPIRED BY MONET" was the first of series of 3 special workshops we plan to host this summer on Monet. We created acrylic paintings inspired by MONET and other impressionism painters. As you may know Yokohama Museum of Art is hosting a big MONET exhibition (7/14-9/24). We thought this will be an awesome opportunity to introduce one of the greatest painters in history to children and to let kids explore painting techniques used by Monet and his contemporary.
All paintings created in this workshop will be submitted to YOKOHAMA CHILDREN'S ART EXHIBITION 2018 at the YOKOHAMA CIVIC GALLERY on view between 7/20-29. As part 2 of the series, we will have a GALLERY WALK to see our work on display along with many works by other children in Yokohama on Sunday 7/22.
