Colorful sculptural constructions galore during Sarah Braman's Wide Rainbow Workshop with Girls Prep Middle School in the Lower Eastside yesterday after school. Sarah gave an awesome slideshow of her monumental sculptures and installations that inspired the girls to construct their very own colorful artworks with found objects and discarded materials! Sarah brought in pieces of neon plastics, wood she found upstate, mirrored pieces and debris she's collected from her studio for the girls to work with. After her inspiring slideshow of recent gallery exhibitions and artworks indoors and out in nature, she gave us a understanding of balance + helped us build strong foundations, but quickly let the creative juices flow! Check our all the awesome works of arts and sculptures inspired by Sarah!
Cool contemporary artist Adrianne Rubenstein joined us today for a fun workshop with broccoli as our subject, landscape, and inspiration for the afternoon! Adrianne presented a slideshow of her own paintings and drawings using everyday broccoli as her model and discussed the importance of the vegetable to her art practice and even in art history!! Apparently old master painters also used the humble vegetable as a tool for depicting trees and creating beautiful landscapes. Today, Adrianne let us run wild and go abstract with lots of bright colors and creative drawings + variations on boring old broccoli ;) Check out all the awesome works of art created during Adrianne Rubenstein's Wide Rainbow Workshop with Girls Prep Middle School.
Wide Rainbow artist Julia Rommel invited Girls Prep Middle School to visit her painting exhibition 'Man Alive' at Bureau Gallery in the Lower Eastside. The girls had to walk just a few blocks from school to realize an exciting space filled with abstract paintings and lots of color!! Julia welcomed everyone to experience the show and then had a really fun discussion after. The girls were very insightful as Julia talked about her experience in NYC as an artist as well as the landscape paintings surrounding us all. Each colorful painting made up with folds and lots of twists + turns!! We can't thank Julia and her gallery Bureau enough for having us by. Check out some images from this Wide Rainbow walk-through and if you too happen to be in the neighborhood, be sure to stop Julia's stellar show!!
