Young artists to show off work
CROWLEY – Acadiana’s future artists will be exhibiting their summer’s hard work Saturday at The Gallery.
The Crowley Art Association’s 2013 Children’s Summer Workshops came to an end recently and the classes’ students will show off their efforts at a cookie and punch reception at The Gallery Saturday, Aug. 3, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The art varies in medium and style and content, meaning the children will be displaying a lot of different pieces.
For Crowley Art Association President Robert Baxter, who also taught two of his “Adventures in Art” classes, it was also a chance to have the children give back to the community.
“I had the students choose an organization in Crowley to give back to one day of the (week-long) classes,” he said. “One group chose Southwind and the other chose the fire department.”
Baxter noted that the it was fitting that the week that 19 Arizona firefighters were killed while fighting wildfires that the class would choose to give something back to the Crowley Fire Department.
Those works will be presented to representatives for each Saturday as well.
The students, meanwhile, will be able to take their art creations home after the reception.
Other instructors for the summer include Susan Brammer, who taught art to the younger students, and Machelle Booty, who taught acting classes this summer.
