Art Class for Children in Blue Hill
July 9 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Reversing Falls Sanctuary is sponsoring a free art class for children (ages 8 to 12) on Saturday, July 9, from 10 a.m.-noon at the Cynthia Winings Gallery, 24 Parker Point Road in Blue Hill.
Memory Transfer for Children, taught by artist Patricia Wheeler and writer Donna Gold, guides young participants to combine transfers of their favorite photos and rubber stamp images with their own personal stories, recorded from a conversation with Donna.
For this workshop, we ask the children to bring six to eight favorite high-contrast photos of themselves and special people outdoors – in the woods, on the water, in a garden or connecting to other places that hold special meaning.
Patricia will demonstrate simple techniques for transferring these images onto a variety of papers, then enhancing them with rubber stamps and watercolor.
Meanwhile, Donna will talk with each participant for about 10 minutes and print out a transcription of the conversation so each child can experiment with combining portions of their stories with the photo transfers to create small works on paper.
The class is limited to eight participants. Registration is required. To register, email [email protected]
