Eighteen people showed up at CCBC tonight. We looked at the working sketch for the mural drawn by Charles Stegner, and started playing with all sorts of materials for our project.I brought my traveling suitcase of materials you might find in my studio. It is full of baggies with labels as to recyclable or not. The idea is to play around with the materials using a piece of fabric for the blank canvas not worrying about how to put them together. Ideas for trees, sun, snakes, cattails, flowers, fire, bird, bird nest, horse and a boat came up.. Here are some pics from the night. Sorry can't figure out how to rotate.
Holly Hughes' art features projects that are Environmental Art Happenings (E.ART.H) designed to inspire creativity and increase global compassion. She creates by recycling and reusing materials in unique ways, community collaboration, environmental awareness, edible art sculptures, easy to make labyrinths, murals, nature hearts, and more.
This blog chronicles Hughes' latest community art project, Big Fish, Big Tales, and the Big Muddy, a multi-layered community art project involving Missouri River education, stream cleanups and public art.
