7 and Up, This week, Scully Painted Panels!

Spring has sprung at CCA and this week begins our new semester. We look forward to welcoming new students and introducing the regulars to some new artists.

This week students will explore examples of painter Sean Scully’s work to learn about tertiary colors, and repetition of shapes in a composition. They will then apply their knowledge by selecting and painting wood shapes in tertiary colors of their choice and then arranging them in layers to create a pleasing composition that includes positive and negative space.

If your student gets excited by this project they can check out Scully’s work in person at the Smithsonian Art Museum, “Multiplicity”, Washington DC, Nov. 11 2011 – Mar. 11 2012
