A gallery of artist statements
To wrap up our session, parents are asked to join the studio for the last fifteen minutes of class as young artists prepare and display some of their art work. Students go through their portfolios and choose the pieces they wish to display accompanied by short artist statements. One student chose to show a blue color field painting and explains, "I thought the texture of this was very interesting and I also was thinking I could use it as a mouse pad." These statements help the artist reflect on their process through out the session and offer insight into the young artists' thought process.
