This year, Grade 5 & 6 Art Club created art works on canvas based on the Pop Art paintings of artists including Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. In March, Art on Center director Stacey Frates visited the Art Club at the F.M.S. art room and gave students a workshop on how to write their own artists' biographies and helped students to plan the set-up and promotion of their exhibit.
Then, the Art Club students took a field trip to Art on Center to hang and host the "Pop Art Portraits" exhibit's public opening reception on March 30, 2015. There was a fantastic turn out, including F.M.S. staff, families and friends of our members, and the general public.
This project was funded by the Acushnet Cultural Council, a local organization supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
Special thanks to: the Acushnet Cultural Council, director Stacey Frates and Art on Center volunteers, student photographers Emma and Kaylyn, Team Exhibit, Team Refreshments, Team Guestbook, Exhibit Guest Greeters, Ms. D's special assistant Sam R., and all family and friends who attended our event!!
