The “Play/ Toy” Painting Project was inspired by a gift of stuffed animals from a Senior watercolor artist to a teacher of senior Watercolor artists to be used as painting subjects. This led to adults being teamed up with local children to paint paintings of play things. The children chose meaningful toys for inspiration for their acrylic on canvas paintings and the adults chose from the toys (previously selected by the children) for their watercolor paintings.
This project has culminated in a show of 21 pairs of “Play/Toy “paintings that can be viewed in the Meeting Room at the Maynard Library from July 10-August 30. An opening reception will be held on Wednesday, August 28 from 6-7 pm. This will be an exciting opportunity for the senior watercolor painters and second grade acrylic painters to meet each other.
Below are some photos of the work done by the Second Graders.
