The class they will bring to our group will be based on the amazing colorful art of Romero Britto. Britto uses vibrant color, playful themes and hard-edged compositions to capture the attention of both youthful spirits and educated art collectors. His style is described by The New York Times as "exuding warmth, optimism and love." We are going to take Britto's inspiration and create watercolor cards inspired by his fun, colorful abstract images! At the end of class, each student will know a little more about the art techniques of watercolor pencil, and the cards they create can be kept by each artist to pass on to a loved one or can be donated to send peace, love, hope and inspiration to our troops!! (Our lead Artsy Smartsy teacher, Sean, is also a combat veteran who did two tours in Afghanistan!)
