Annual Student Art Exhibition 2019

Venue - Maribelle Davis Library, Plano

Time - May 1st to May 31st 2019

Presenting the works of the students of Crimson Palette Art School for kids and adults. The exhibition showcases multiple projects that we undertook this year. We spent time focussing on the natural landscape and created a variety of locales, some detailed, and some abstracted to simplicity. We created compositions containing dinner and desserts. A number of the younger students played around with color and patterns to create a line of abstract compositions. 

One of the interesting features of this year’s exhibition is the portrait series in color pencil.

I hope you enjoy visiting this exhibition as much as we have creating it!

As artists mature, they tend to develop signature styles, and preferred media that they like to explore and play with.This very special exhibition showcases a handful of students who have been with Crimson Palette for a few years. I am so happy to have witnessed the journey of these young artists, not only in their art but as individuals.

Exhibition

 

Presenting the selected works of the students of Crimson Palette. This exhibition features three main themes. The first is our interpretations of Van Gogh’s starry night. The paintings have vivid colors, thick application of paint, distinctive brushstrokes, and composition similar to the Starry night. 

There is a strong influence of Marvel characters this year, represented with paint and pencil. We round up our exhibition with animal compositions, realistic and nonrepresentational. 

 

Van Gogh Interpretation 2018

Themed

 

Workshop

 

Vincent Van Gogh is one of the best known and most beloved artists of our day. He is the vanguard of the Post Impressionism movement which can be recognized by the use of vivid colors, thick application of paint, distinctive brushstrokes and real-life subject matter. The Starry night is one of his most famous paintings. We try to understand the beautiful painting and then very boldly attempt our hand at interpreting the masterpiece. Presenting a few samples our very own home grown VanGoghs :)

Holiday Craft

 

A theme is the underlying message of a painting. The aim of our end of the year holiday craft this year was to interpret and represent a theme on an unpainted wooden structure. The varied themes represented included forest in winter, spring flowers, Spiderman and the American flag.

Annual Student Exhibition

We get bigger and better every year. This year’s exhibition featured over sixty five pieces in a variety of media. We’ve worked on landscapes, still life and abstract art in acrylic paints, pencil and mixed media.

 

For the first time, Crimson Palette had work exhibited by adult participants. We concluded the year of learning and enjoying art by an extremely successful exhibition put forth by the supremely talented young artists. 

 

Our Holiday Craft, 2016

Holiday Craft

 

This is our interpretation of the humble birdhouse/ christmas ornament. I gave the students a blank state and minimal direction and let their creative juices flow. As usual, they came up with a diverse array of work. No two houses were remotely alike. We have houses with christmas lights surrounded by snow to a rainforest home overgrown with vines. There is an ardent Dallas cowboy fan and a house with patterned African motifs. I have included just a few of the many wonderful projects.

Annual Student Exhibition

Plano

 

This is by far our biggest exhibition yet. Its variety is as difficult to categorize as the young talented students who created the artworks. It includes over 50 pieces by the budding artists of Crimson Palette Art School.

The younger children created an intriguing array of drawings depicting landscapes, animals, aircrafts and nature at their scenic best. The more advanced students got their first taste of watercolor painting and created landscapes and O’keeffe inspired flower depictions. A study in contrasts explorers tints and shades in pencil drawing, acrylic paint, charcoal and pastels. As always, we are grateful to the Davis Library and the city of Plano for creating such a wonderful venue for us to hold our exhibition.

 

Workshop, 2015

Workshop

 

Girl Scout Rocky Point Camp workshop in 2015

 

This workshop was conducted at the Rocky Point campsite. It was a beautiful camp by Lake Texoma. The scouts worked on their Comic Artist Cadette badge. They delved into the world of comics, collected and analyzed the styles of different comic artists and created their own comic strip. They learnt to draw the caricatures, frame it into four panels and then add words to tell a story. By the end of the afternoon, we had some rib tickling comic strips to display.

The annual exhibition 2015 is a collection of four series of paintings and sketches. The first is a still life of a colorful cup that the students painted from varied viewpoints.

 

The second one was an acrylic on canvas landscape painting. This was the most challenging and detailed project that we undertook.The students picked vistas from stormy seas to snowy mountains. Our study of perspective drawing helped make the landscape paintings look realistic.'Things we love’ is fun collection of quick paintings which show depictions of our favorite things.

I conducted a Girl Scout Bette Perot Camp workshop in 2014.

 

This workshop was conducted at the Bette Perot campsite in Palestine Texas. It was a beautiful day to be painting outdoors. The scouts created individual artworks which earned them credit towards getting their Junior Drawing Badge. They  experimented with different materials to find their favorite drawing tool – called a “medium” . They learnt how to add shading- starting always with light and going darker. They even added a personal graphic to their canvases. We spent a fun afternoon doing what we love and earning a badge while we were at it.

A splash of 'I', September 2014

Annual Student Exhibition

Plano

 

The underlying theme of this exhibition was “I ”.

 

The students created a variety of artworks in their quest to express themselves. In the first collection the student uses a letter of the alphabet and builds a representation of their personality around it. Another collection was an abstraction devoid of all form. The canvases had blocks of color in interesting placements.

 

This is the one that the students went crazy with. It was a whole lot of fun to do. No exhibition is complete without still life and pencil sketches from some of our youngest artists.
