Art & Leadership Summer Program Art Show
Join us to celebrate the conclusion of this year’s O’Keeffe Art & Leadership Summer Program!
Our end-of-summer art show is arranged in honor of our talented young participants, their families, and the hard work of our A&L staff. Come see the amazing work created by our young artists this year!
The O’Keeffe Art & Leadership Program’s main initiative is to teach young artists self-confidence and self-expression through creativity, leadership skills, and identity development. The lessons and journeys fostered within the program help push these students to cross new artistic boundaries.
This year, the program focused on pushing students outside of their artistic comfort zones. Program staff aimed to broaden student horizons in terms of art and creativity, and would encourage students to constantly think bigger. At this age, young artists are often overly concerned with realism. In the spirit of Georgia O’Keeffe’s artistic vision, lesson plans revolved around thinking abstractly; about assigning specific emotions to certain colors, shapes, perspectives, and lines and seeing how that affected the overall ‘feeling’ of the artwork. It is through these lessons that students were encouraged to develop their own visual language and style.
