Putnam County Arts Council will be providing us with these fun classes this summer!
In each class of these Zoom classes, people of all ages will be able to show their creativity through different art projects. All materials needed are common household items!
Materials: Wax crayons in a variety of colors, watercolor or water-based paint with palette (ex. plastic plates, bowls, or cups), sturdy paper, large brush, container of water, paper towels, small cups for color mixing (optional), table salt (optional), newspaper or table covering (optional but recommended)
will create atmospheric drawings of a variety of leaves using a crayon wax
resist technique. Color mixing will be introduced with both crayons and paint,
and the basic structure of different varieties of leaves will be explored. It
is suggested that participants bring a few leaves in from their neighborhood or
any surrounding environment if possible. After learning a few different ways to
create leaves, participants will be encouraged to explore their creativity by
mixing and matching patterns, styles and colors to make their own fantasy
*This project is made possible, in part, through the Putnam Arts Council’s Arts Link Grant Program with public funds provided through the NY State Council on the Arts with support from the Governor’s Office and the NY State Legislature and with public funds from Putnam County.
