The kids at the  Bellewood Home for Children  have really loved printmaking! Instructor and  ceramic artist Lisa Simon  says they have done some wonderful monoprints and callographs and group printing. Her photos here show the kids doing group printmaking. They discovered that they also like to print on themselves!

Open Doors Feature: Visually Impaired Preschool Services

We are having a great time working with Kosair Kids® through Kosair Charities and Fund for the Arts to bring a 28 week program to the Visually Impaired Preschool Services! During this class visit artist facilitator Ehren Reed and intern Zara Goldberg worked with students to mold clay into the letter of their first name and then add textural embellishments. This exercise is in preparation for a clay tile mural that the students will create next!

Open Doors Feature: Photography Time Machine

We had a great time working with Kosair Kids® through Kosair Charities and Fund for the Arts to bring a 8 week photography program as part of a full school year initiative with Home of the Innocents! Photographer Jenny Zeller took students through the history of photography— working with cyanotypes, polaroids, transfers, disposable cameras, as well as digital cameras! While exploring various photographic processes, students also learned the fundamentals of image making.
