Our Second Art Connect Session:
The Lakehills Boys and Girl's Teen center
Art You had its first Visual Art Connect Session this April at the Lakehills Boys and Girl's Teen Center. The theme of the session was animals. The teens were taught how to draw a variety of animals such as elephants, peacocks and snakes to name a few. Meanwhile, Savitha and Nisha demonstrated the animals the teens drew, using Bharatanatyam, an Indian classical dance form, to illustrate how different classical art forms can be used to express the same concept. The teens' drawings were incredible!
Additionally, during this session, Art You launched its latest initiative, Art Kit, which distributes free art supplies as part of the effort to spread awareness among children from diverse socio-economic backgrounds through enabling them to engage in classical art forms. The Art Kits we created for this session contained a high quality drawing pad and other art supplies, so that the teens could continue with their artistic endeavors at home :) .
