Students inspire through the arts with drawing, painting, and collage on rocks throughout the Franklin Common. Messages of kindness, hope, and positivity serve to remind us that art can be a form of expression that evokes emotion in the viewer. Community members are welcome to design their own rock to contribute to the “BFCCPS Rocks Art Walk.” We will provide paint brushes and supplies!
What’s not to love about art that is accessible to all ages and ability levels and is perfect for group display! This free two-hour introductory level art event will introduce participants to several exciting watercolor techniques layered with marker, colored pencil, and pastel. The final product, a three-dimensional pod, will be displayed in a public installation during Franklin’s ArtWeek. Working with Carolann Tebbetts, visual arts director for FPS and high school art teacher, a range of techniques will be utilized to first create a 2D decorative surface. That 2D paper will be transformed into a three-dimensional pod that twirls and moves when hung in a open area. All pods will be installed in a public venue for the town to enjoy! This workshop is open to all middle school aged children and students in the Best Buddies program (with a buddy)! This class has 20 only spots available.
