Andrea Parra’s Art Workshop IV, June 29, 2013

Surrealism

Man sees egg, paints bird. Why?

While showing slides of surrealist paintings Andrea posed questions about the images.

The young artists cut images from magazines, postcards from France, and brochures of Guanajuato to make surrealist collages.

While young artists made collages, Andrea wrote a farewell letter summing up her four workshops.

The Surprise

At the end of the workshop Kate Clancy told the young artists the surprise: an exhibition of their art.  To prepare, the children will gather Saturday July 6 for a work party to polish their works of art.  Katie will guide the finishing touches. Painter and collage maker Dylan Williams (who taught the first workshop in this series) will come by to measure for mating and framing.

Date and place of the exhibit: TBA.

Thanks again to Dylan Williams and Colectivo T.A.N. 473 for providing these workshops!
