I spent last month working with 5 different classes of 4 – 5 year olds in the Clackamas County Head Start Program. We made lots and lots of drawings of bugs, monsters, dinosaurs, and other shapes inspired by what we found in the clouds. The creative, often silly and surprisingly complex characters were then transferred into some of my paintings, mounted on wood, and covered in resin. The finished pieces are all really unique combinations of childhood visions and storytelling and my own artistic style .
All the work will be on display at Errata Gallery and available for sale at prices starting at $30!! Please come out to the opening, or view the work online. 100% of profits will be donated to the Mental health department of Clackamas county childrens’ commission head Start to purchase play therapy services and supplies for low income preschoolers served by the program.
