Painting and Perspective
As part of our celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the Caldecott Medal, we invited artist Melanie Kehoss to visit Central Library’s after school Kids Club on Wednesday, February 20.
Inspired by previous Caldecott winner Flotsam by David Wiesner, the kids played with perspective, making small things huge and big things tiny to design their own picture book covers. Then, using watercolors and black and white crayons, they made their creations come to life.
Check out their beautiful work!
Melanie Kehoss is an art instructor with Arlington Arts Center and has work featured in AAC’s INTERWOVEN. Art.Craft.Design., on exhibit January 18 – March 24, 2013.
