Art Adventures

California STEAMin! with Lindsay Behrens

Thursday, July 20, 2017

Stuart Davis, Analogical Emblem Landscape, 1933, Oil on composition board, 13 7/8 x 14 3/4 inches, Olga H. Knoepke Fund and Members Purchase Fund

Students will explore the landscape of Southern California with teaching artist Lindsay Behrens. A major influence for the artists included in California Dreaming: Ed Moses, Billy Al Bengston & Ed Ruscha, the region’s combination of natural and man-made elements will serve as inspiration to use math and science to create art. By exploring tangrams and radial symmetry, students will use paper, watercolors, and fine-tipped markers to construct abstract compositions similar to those of the Cool School artists.

Art Adventures is best suited for kids ages 6 and up.
Preregistration is required.
