I just completed a four week artist in residency at the Resurrection St. Paul school in Ellicott City, last Friday. I worked with the entire fourth grade and the school art teacher, Michele Rupert. The project was jointly funded by the school and the MD. State Arts Council.
We painted four 2 ‘ x 8’ panels that depicted a gardens. Two of the panels were created in an up close perspective of the flowers and garden creatures. The other two panels depicted before and after views of the students creating a garden. The school is a designated butterfly garden and they do a monarch release each year as well as build bird houses and boxes for mason bees.
