The artwork above was a commission I worked on recently with the idea to create a piece of art that would be both a learning experience and fun project, while obtaining some great artwork! I call it my “Creating a Legacy through Art Project”. Three little girls, and their mom worked on the artwork with me as their guide. It was a great deal of fun and a tremendous learning experience for the children. Guiding them through picking their color palette, learning different ways to create texture, transparency and form to discovering a theme was a hands on way to learn a deep love and appreciation of how art can be so rewarding both in making it and collecting it. It is especially satisfying as the artwork is secured to tracks that move the painting up to reveal a television hidden behind it. Which is more important? It’s obvious the art! It hides the television!
