Students Bring Museum to Life in 2016 Calendar

 

Hathaway-Sycamores 2016 Children's Art Calendar A group of young artists from Highland Park had the opportunity to create paintings inspired by the collection at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, or other museums this summer. The children let their imaginations run free as they began their creative journey bringing the museum to life. The varied and colorful results are showcased in the 2016 Children’s Art Calendar. This one-of-a-kind calendar is an ideal holiday gift for family and friends. The calendar is sure to brighten each month of the upcoming year!

The 2016 Hathaway-Sycamores Children’s Art Calendar can be ordered for $10.00 each plus a flat rate of $5.00 for shipping. Order below or contact  Andi Sica by email or phone at (626) 395-7100 ext. 2516.

Created through the “A Visit to the Museum” art project, the Hathaway-Sycamores calendar is both beautiful and affordable, and proceeds will help fund crucial services needed by the thousands of youngsters and families served annually by Hathaway-Sycamores Child and Family Services.

This unique calendar came to be as part of an innovative summer art program offered by Hathaway-Sycamores’ Family Resource Center to area students. The children – ranging in age from 6 to 12 – spent afternoons receiving art instruction from Master-in-Residence artist Mary Kay Wilson. Well known for her work with watercolors, Wilson’s award-winning paintings have been widely exhibited at both regional and national art shows. Wilson paintings can be viewed at www.marykaywilson.com.

At the weekly sessions, students were taught basic concepts of drawing and watercolor painting. Some of the artists chose to add a pop-up element to their paintings, depicting the idea that when we explore museums, they truly do come to life. The program is designed to not only introduce youngsters and adolescents to a new skill set, but also to introduce them to an empowering avenue of self-expression. According to Mary Kay, “I am grateful to be able to work with these passionate young artists in such a supportive environment. Helping each child realize their own unique vision is always an adventure that inspires me!”

The 2016 Hathaway-Sycamores Children’s Art Calendar can be pre-ordered for $10.00 plus $5.00 shipping. Order below or contact  Andi Sica by email or phone at (626) 395-7100 ext. 2516.
