Spring 2017 “Students to A6” program

“Cold-Blooded Neighbors: Woodcuts of Central Oregon Reptiles”

Life Sciences, Art Appreciation & Creative Skill-Building

May and June 2017

Teachers—bring your students to A6’s May exhibit, “Cold-Blooded Neighbors” to see detailed woodcut prints of native snakes and lizards by local artist Abney Wallace. Our 90-minute program—developed in partnership with High Desert Museum—connects the exhibit to art appreciation and life sciences. Referencing the prints, we’ll identify ways reptiles have adapted to local environments. We’ll also delve into elements and principles of design by discussing the artist’s use of line, shape, pattern, rhythm and positive/negative space. We’ll continue exploring these concepts in the studio, as students create original snake prints using A6’s presses. Title 1 students will also receive a family pass to High Desert Museum to see many of these reptile species in person! $8/student  (discounts for Title 1)

Schedule today: Call Dawn Boone at 541.318.6275 or email A6.
