ART ADVENTURES ARE GRANDPARENT AND GRANDCHILD ART CLUBS THAT WILL MEET TO EXPLORE ART AND NATURE TOGETHER AT KUBOTA GARDEN
Art Adventures with Mary Magenta are Grandparent and Grandchild "Art Clubs" that will meet at Seattle’s Kubota Garden this summer to explore nature through art. These clubs will meet once a week, each a 2 hour session, starting July 10th and ending August 21st. We will meet rain or shine in the beauty of this publicly owned jewel of a park to listen and to learn from each other while we spend time in nature getting our creative juices flowing!
Each week these art clubs will work on one art concept, for example drawing or composition, and complete one art project per person or per grandchild/grandparent team, that demonstrates and ingrains what we’ve learned. My assistant, an early art education major, and I have identified areas within the park for each week’s Art Adventure and we’ve completed lesson plans.
Your financial support will cover the cost of park rental, required insurance, the supplies needed for the Adventures and for the art show – including an art kit for each child and elder.
But this project doesn’t stop with just these 6 weekly Art Adventures. Art Adventures with Mary Magenta also includes an art show where we will publically display these works. The "Gifts of Kubota" Art Show will provide the participants the opportunity to show our art and the community the opportunity to experience this very local art, free of charge. This art show is scheduled to coincide with our larger local community’s Rainier Beach Art Walk on September 15, 2012. On this weekend we will showcase the works Art Adventure participants do this summer, exhibit – literally - what a treasure Kubota Garden is to our neighborhood, and celebrate the generations and cultures that make the most diverse zip code in the county, according to the most recent Census, such a fabulous place to be.
My goals for this project are:
Bring generations together to listen and learn from one another;
Provide healthy, outdoor activity to children and elders;
Encourage creative expression in a supportive and educational venue;
Celebrate and inspire desire for life long learning while promoting screen-free child and elder experiences;
Bring more people to visit and value this amazing park.
Based on the excitement of some of the children and elders who have expressed interest to date, I believe Art Adventures with Mary Magenta has already started to achieve some of these goals. Your support will help see them all achieved and perhaps inspire a lifelong Adventure expressing the glories of this planet through Art.
