Mary Silveira School in San Rafael culminated their school year by hanging a fantastic art show featuring artworks by each student in the school. Youth in Art’s Mentor Artist Julia James worked with every child in the school during the 2008-2008 school year to create a broad range of artworks in a variety of media. Students were able to experiment with drawing in pencil, oil pastel, painting in watercolor and tempera, and collage using beautiful handmade papers.
Julia used her student’s artwork as her inspiration for her own square at the Youth in Arts Italian Street Painting Festival in June, where she used soft pastels to create a fabulous sunflower using most of the colors in her box (as she challenges her students to do in their own work).
The after school program will start up again on Thursday, August 20th. Check back soon for information on the new classes being offered. Click on the image to see the after-school calender for 2009-2010.
