To enrich the cultural landscape of Lemont by fostering the production and appreciation of the arts.
Thanks to all who participated in our Free Youth Workshop on Sunday, March 18th in celebration of Youth Arts Month. It was a BEAUTIFUL day and we had 15 budding young artists join us (inside!) for a really great art experience. We played a really fun (and silly) drawing game called Exquisite Corpse, which was a favorite creativity-starter for the Surrealist artists. Then we created a Pop Art painting in the style of Andy Warhol. We finished up our hour-and-a-half session with some gesture figure drawing using charcoal, which really got the kids drawing quickly and observing closely – all while having fun!
Here are some shots of art in action:
