Inspired by Philadelphia artist C. Joseph Warlow and his painting of St. John’s Parish in Manayunk on exhibit at the Woodmere Art Museum, 7th grade boys discussed how painters memorialize a site for future generations to enjoy in their art class with Mrs. Jackson. And, like the Impressionists, painters portray a moment in time with their own unusual visual angles to depict their perception and experience of the site. Their Plein Air watercolors, representing scenes around campus, are part of an exhibition now on display in the children’s gallery at the Woodmere Art Museum. The show runs through December 19, with a reception on December 11.
These boys participated in the Kids CARE project, where hundreds of students in the Philadelphia area created artwork as holiday gifts for people homebound with chronic illness, and donated their artworks to Metropolitan Area Neighborhood Nutrition Alliance (MANNA) to be delivered along with their holiday meals.
