With the arrival of spring, a new color palette emerges into the landscapes around us, thanks to those who have planned for this new season—those who love the periwinkle of crocuses, the bright yellow of forsythia, and the bold hues of tulips. Through long and monochromatic winters, such as the one that has just passed, art keeps the possibility of color alive. Here at Danforth Art, we celebrate color and creativity—through every season and all year round. IMAGE: Bernard Chaet, Sunflower and Window (detail), 1997. Oil on canvas. Collection of Danforth Art. Gift of Nick and Dee Adams.
This summer, students in grades 1-8 will explore Nature as Art, making discoveries about art-making and learning fundamental art skills in a fun environment. Each day will bring new artistic exploration on the week’s theme. Special programs for teens in grades 9-12 provide opportunities to create portfolio-appropriate work with the guidance of professional artist-instructors. Register for am classes or pm classes, or both, for one week-long session or more!
We are now accepting submissions for Picture This!, Danforth Art’s annual exhibition of original artwork by emerging and established children's book illustrators. The 2015 Guest Juror is Cathryn Mercier, Director of the Center for the Study of Children’s Literature at Simmons College.
