Today my post is actually something I have to do for school, but it was pretty amazing and inspiring so of course I had to share.
For my Art in the Elementary School Studio class we’ve been divided up into small groups and asked to research an artist to theoretically introduce to elementary-aged students and present ways in which to integrate the art with other subjects relevant to the students, as well as the artist.
So pretty easy right? Haha, well… with the artist my partner and I are doing our research on, it is.
“Callie” Curry aka Swoon is an amazing Floridian turned New York street artist. Utilizing blockprinting and wheatpasting as her main medium, Swoon creates beautiful images of the people around here. (For a more in depth description of her work and intentions visit Philagrafika 2010)
We’re basing our research off of this clip, which along with the website mentioned above, I believe give a pretty great summation of what everyone is Swoon-ing over.
