Arts In Action Summer Workshops underway at Young School
Students proudly show the picture frames they made June 20 with local artist Hanna Radostits.
Youngsters are having a great time working with local artists this week as they create paper action figures, personalized picture frames and glazed mosaics in the style of author/artist Eric Carle.
It’s all part of Homer School District 33C’s Arts in Action Summer Workshops at Young School.
“Arts in Action has enriched our children’s lives for over 15 years,” said program coordinator Cyn O’Brien, “giving thousands of students an appreciation and hands-on experience working with local artists from our surrounding communities.”
Students had an opportunity to sign up for 13 workshops, including jewelry making with Lynn Rozycki, painting with Mona Parry and photography with Bill and Nancy Uznanski.
Local artist Dan Dougherty led the workshop on paper action figures while artist Hanna Radostits worked with children on picture frames and three-dimensional mini skyscrapers.
