We are happy and grateful to say we have had the opportunity to work with some wonderfully talented and generous guest artists, so far this fall session!
Kerry Keeler and guest artist Neri Garcia Farraz from Pérez Art Museum Miami were able to visit us at Shake A Leg Miamithrough their community outreach program Art-2-Go . They taught our students about elements of art such as line, form, and color. They guided the class in creating a group art project they pieced together like a puzzle, which became the final piece.
Guest artist Natasha Teresa Velez came in to work with us on different ways we can use materials, such as shaped brushes and salt, to create watercolor pieces.
Thank you very much Natasha, Kerry, and Neri! Your support and guidance allowed everyone to display their incredible creativity and individuality.
The works created during these workshop’s will be part of a forthcoming art show presented by the students of Nature Links and members of the local Miami art community.
We look forward to continuing to work withPerez Art Museum Miamiin the future. Thank You again for providing this wonderful opportunity for our students.
