A prolific week for the artists of the Riverdale Neighborhood House painting class :)

Classroom photos of the latest work by Miguel’s art students at Riverdale Neighborhood House in the Bronx. They are doing some really great work!

Says Miguel: “Students used tissue paper for collage.  Students practiced layering, tearing, crumpling amongst other techniques.  One student laid down the tissue paper and pulled it up to see what design would be left (picture 2).  As well, students used paint techniques that were taught in a previous lesson to further change and mix colors, splatter and add depth to their designs.  Some students covered the entire paper while others focused on a small section.  Students were asked to be cognizant of their choices and to write sbout the proces at the end of class.”




Arts to Grow asks our teaching artists to send us photos & updates every week so we can share what’s happening in our classrooms… check back often for the latest!
