Lux artist-in-residence James Chronister's unique process inspired Lux Kids-in-Residence to paint for weeks with small marks, using spots, dots, and tiny specks to form a variety of artworks. They used brushes (#2 round is James's fave!), q-tips and toothpicks in the process.
Painting spots like Damien Hirst takes discipline and patience, but is a great way to practice color mixing and brush control.
Using a q-tip and black paint, students rendered impressive self-portraits.
And for their featured project, students spent several weeks making paintings of Ansel Adams landscape photographs.
At the final art show students showed off their finished works (including these colorful spot paintings) and celebrated with family and friends!
