Youth Art Month

March, being National Youth Art Month (YAM), was super busy for the Hooked on Art staff.  We began the month in Daphne, AL at Bayside Academy’s Fine Arts Day.” Becky Guinn demonstrated using liquid watercolor in spray bottles on YUPO paper.  She moved the paint around with her brush, mixing colors as she worked.  The Kindergartners and 1st graders enjoyed the demonstration. Mrs. Guinn also showed artwork that she has created since losing her limbs.  Becky Cairns, science specialist helped explain  Mrs. Guinn’s use of prosthetics and myoelectric arms. This intrigued the  children and they asked many questions that Mrs. Guinn and Mrs. Cairns answered. Paintings done as demonstrations were left for the Bayside Academy’s use.
