Making Art Together

Latin Landscapes

I thought you might be interested in seeing what Museum guests are up to in The Studio lately!

Latin Landscapes/ The Eric Carle Museum Studio Blog

The current Public Art Project is Latin Landscapes and guests are invited to capture the beauty of any outdoor space and create a picturesque panorama adapting the textured drawing style of illustrator Raul Colon.  The project is inspired by one of our current exhibitions, Latino Folk Tales: Cuentos Populares–Art by Latino Artists, on display now through June 9th. On the tables are oil pastels, colored pencils and watercolor paints, as well as plastic combs and forks for scoring the paper and making textured marks in the creamy oil pastels. Below are a few different interpretations of landscapes by some of our talented guests!

It's hard to see the scratched texture details in these photos, but close up the overlap of the paints and pastels makes a really beautiful effect.
