Open Doors instructor Katy showed high school students at  JCPS   Uspiritus-Brooklawn School  various examples of  Chuck Close ’s paintings from his career. They had learned how to mix colors and different ways to use their brushes. They drew self-portraits, as they saw themselves, and were to make grids of approximately two-inch squares. They applied bright colors of their choice and utilized said technical skills they have learned. They used acrylic paint and graphite on 22x30 inch paper. They were allowed freedom to deviate if they chose.  Special thanks to Fund for the Arts'  Arts for Kosair Kids®  for their generous support of this project!

Bellewood: Exhibition Celebration

We have been working with Kosair Kids® through Kosair Charities and Fund for the Arts to bring an art therapy program with Bellewood Home for Children, who "have worked to nurture Kentucky's most vulnerable children."

We celebrated this art program's conclusion as proud students shared what they made this summer with instructor and ceramic artist Lisa Simon - they are some of the sweetest kids we've gotten to work with yet!
