Ms. Julia at the show
Mary Silveira School in San Rafael culminated their school year by hanging a fantastic art show featuring artworks by each student in the school. Youth in Art’s Mentor Artist Julia James worked with every child in the school during the 2008-2008 school year to create a broad range of artworks in a variety of media. Students were able to experiment with drawing in pencil, oil pastel, painting in watercolor and tempera, and collage using beautiful handmade papers.
Sunflower Inspired by My Students, by Ms. Julia
Julia used her student’s artwork as her inspiration for her own square at the Youth in Arts Italian Street Painting Festival in June, where she used soft pastels to create a fabulous sunflower using most of the colors in her box (as she challenges her students to do in their own work).
