Good Morning Eureka artists! Here is your "Be Creative" challenge day 7.
Faith Ringgold is a well know American artists made famous by her story quilt paintings and children's books. Her most well known book is "Tar Beach"
I had the opportunity to meet her years ago and she is quite an amazing lady. I am providing 2 links for you to watch. One is about her life and artwork and the other is her reading the book "Tar Beach".
Your challenge today can go 2 ways. 1) Imagine if you could fly anywhere right now, where would you go? Draw or paint a picture of that place, or even of you flying over that place. 2) Faith Ringgold talks about using the people that have inspired her and have been important to her in her artwork. Draw someone that inspires you.
You could do one, or BOTH of these challenges. watch the links, have fun, stay home, and MAKE SOME ART!
