This spring semester, the Art Appreciation committee is excited to teach the children about 20th century American artist Robert Rauschenberg. Rauschenberg is an American painter, sculptor and graphic artist. He is well known for his "combines," where he uses nontraditional materials and objects in innovative ways. The children will learn about him as a person and an artist, and then create their own collages or "combines" using pictures, art supplies and everyday objects. The Art Appreciation parent volunteer training will be Friday, January 27th at 9:30am in the Cafeteria. We will go over the presentation and art project, and will answer any and all questions!! Looking forward to seeing you all there!! Questions? Contact the chairs: Sara Greisberg, Lauren Brickman and Ovidio Bacallao.
