Opening Reception: August 29th, 6-8pm

Exhibition Dates: August 29th – September 26th

Includes: Work made by students from District 7 elementary schools who participated in this summer’s Summer Zone art class, Masterpiece Mondays.  Taught by SIUE graduate student Eric Heerspink, students explored different ways to express ideas and beauty with many types of artistic media. Just a few projects included colorful, bubbly paintings made with watercolors and soap, and another one involved a contemporary art history lesson where students learned about the work of Romero Britto.  Kids learned about pattern and color while they made their own drawings based on his bold cubist paintings.
