This Thursday, Indialantic Elementary School's Quest Program will host their 3rd Annual Indian River Lagoon Festival at the Radisson Oceanfront Conference Center from 6:00-7:30 PM. The evening showcases what the students have been learning including their experiences with local artists.
I've had the opportunity to work with 6th grade students in the program over the course of the year teaching gyotaku (fish printing) and suminagashi (Japanese marbling). We had a wonderful time creating together - they're a fun group to work with!
In preparation for the Art Auction we created a piece together using marbled silk squares that each of the
students made. The fish print is one that I had done. The piece was assembled with organza sashing and comes to life with light filtering through it. My photographs fail to do their beautiful marbling justice!
If you're in the community, we hope you'll come enjoy the event and bid in the silent auction. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Sea Turtle Preservation Society.
