Kids' artwork reigns supreme at new exhibit "Artists' Eyes: Children's Artwork from Studio in a School"
Tue Mar 15 2011
More than 200 works by preschoolers, grade schoolers and tweens catch the spotlight in the newly opened "Artists' Eyes: Children's Artwork from Studio in a School," at the 1285 Avenue of the Americas Art Gallery. The budding artists used anything and everything as inspiration for their art, from New York cityscape drawings and animal paintings to expressive portraits and shape-inspired collages. All were made during workshops with Studio in a School, an organization that brings artists to local classrooms to engage children's imagination with painting, drawing, sculpture and other visual arts. Afterward, you and your kids can check out the fun and funky watercolor paintings of vegetable superheroes, complete with lettuce bodies and spiky carrot hair, created through SIS's new Art & Healthy Living initiative. Through May 13. Mon--Fri 8am--6pm. 1285 Sixth Ave between 51st and 52nd Sts (studioinaschool.org). Free.
