What is Happening in December ar the Rumriver Art Center

This week our drawing and art journal classes will be inspired by American artist Charles Wysocki (1928 – 2002). You may not have heard of him but you probably have seen his work on one his calendars. Wysocki is a wonderful artist for kids because of his playful use of animals in his work. Charles Wysocki, who was born in 1928 in Detroit, Michigan. From the time he was a little tot, he always wanted to be an artist. He loved using cats and other critters in his whimsical paintings and prints. Wysocki is known for his primitive folk art style. In our lesson we use the Wysocki painting “Shall We” as our inspiration. We focus on the cats looking at the fish bowl. We use a combination of watercolor pencils and pastel chalk to create texture and dimension.
