Color, Color, Color Abounds

It's true what they say: Kids have no fear.

Artists of Tomorrow, an exhibition featuring the work of elementary students from South Haven, Bangor, and Covert schools, is visual proof. Their developing minds have soared above and beyond in creative expression, as they do each year for a show the art center designs for kids to display their work in a gallery setting.

Step into a world of vivid color and explore other cultures like the Amazon, Madagascar, the canals of Xochimilco (pronounced So-chee-milk-o) near Mexico City, and Dia de los Muertos. Immerse yourself into desert and seasonal landscapes, and enjoy interpretations of architecture, food, robots, self-portraits, and lots and lots of animals.

The kids explored surrealism, pointillism, and other creative styles using observational drawing, non-objective art, complementary colors, perspective, texture, symmetry, and other techniques taught by the talented art teachers that grace our area schools.

When asked if they might like to be an artist someday, many students say yes. They are delighted to see their work on the walls of the art center. They are excited to find their piece of artwork and tell their parents and friends about it. And many wait expectantly for the review.
