In a nod to the city of Fenton as a foodie destination and great supporter of the Arts, the Fenton Arts Council, (creator and producer of “Arts Are The Heart” events), has provided this DIY take home art box. This box is being handed out at the June 10, 2021 City of Fenton Street Experience.
In the box, participants will find air dry clay and acrylic paint pots and supplies to sculpt food themed mini sculptures. These sculptures are inspired by two famous artists with food based subjects; Claus Oldenburg and Wayne Thiebaud. These artists as well as the ongoing exhibit at the Flint Institute of Arts; ‘Blue Plate Special’, glass art by John Miller turn standbys of American Cuisine into wonderful works of art. For ‘hungry’ artists from youth to adults these take home art boxes are sure to spark the imagination and engage makers to view food from a whole new perspective.
The Fenton Arts Council hopes you will enjoy creating mini food sculptures and encourage you to post a photo on our FB page or send photo to: info@FentonArtsCouncil.com
“ Arts Are The Heart” 2021 events include two Art Exhibits at Cause & Affect Gallery, PopUp Art Stations, two Art Box Creations and Children's StoryWalk. If you are interested in supporting the Fenton Arts Council, please visit: FentonArtsCouncil.com
