In partnership with the Fort Worth Library’s 2013-2014 Worth Reading initiative, the Sid Richardson Museum offered a children’s workshop about the Art of Story last weekend.
Our docents guided the children through the galleries, exploring the various narrative elements in paintings.
After spending time with the museum’s collection, the children moved to our studio classroom, where they used their recently acquired knowledge to create their very own landscape painting.
Kat Yount, Director of School and Family Programs, believes in the importance of using authentic artist supplies. She provides each student with painter’s acrylic and canvas. After learning the techniques of landscape painting and working with the materials, the students take to their canvases and let their creative juices flow!
