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!
