smARTS Exhibit 2012
Every 2 years Idyllwild Arts Academy hosts an exhibit in their Park's Gallery for the smARTS Project. This exhibit showcases the work of all the students, K-8, enrolled in the local public school. All of the projects were done in the smARTS program. smARTS is an art program in school where local artists teach art to the local children. It is completely funded by donations and grants and run by volunteers. I am proud to be one of the founders and a teacher for the program. It has been a wonderful experience for me. This show marks smARTS' 10 year anniversary. I'm no longer involved with the organization, since my own son has graduated off to high school, but I'm happy to still be involved in teaching art to the kids.
This year the projects I did with the students that were represented in this show were Batiks with 6th grade, Sarcophagi with 6th grade, Chinese New Year Dragons with 4th grade, Pattern Cats with 2nd grade and Pattern Turtles with Kindergarten. Here's most all of my lessons for your viewing.
The exhibit runs until March 16.
