Last week was the start of my summer art program. My first group of students spent the week learning about the art of Hawaiian based artist Heather Brown.
Brown is known for her surf art that celebrates the natural beauty of Hawaii. We looked at her artwork Juicy Sunset (below) for inspiration to create our own acrylic paintings. This artwork offers a great opportunity to introduce students to warm and cool colour families, as well as colour mixing-something that's always a big hit with kids.
