Art & Creative Writing Workshops on Boston’s South Shore

Standard

How exciting to note The Wishing Well opened last week with a painting workshop–Seven Colors of Spring: Painting in Vibrant Color. This is the first run of Seven Colors which will also run during summer camp in June and will be offered at the Milton Art Center in July.  Ten children in the general age-group 7-10 came to play with color wheels, learn about Georgia O’ Keefe, view her extravagantly beautiful flower paintings, talk about how she uses color and form, and experiment with painting flowers in her style, using blending techniques and painting from real-life–real flowers, that is–deep red carnations, vibrantly yellow sunflowers, delicate white and yellow fleabane, impossibly fragrant pink lilies, wild berries, pink roses, and an exquisite purple orchid. It was a rainy, thundery evening, which precluded our viewing rainbows through prisms as planned, but after our discussions of primary and secondary colors, cool and warm colors, and Georgia O’ Keefe’s sweeping shapes and forms and lines, all the kids broke open their paint boxes, chose vibrant colors, and painted sunflowers and orchids and lilies with abandon.

The Wishing Well opens this spring in Quincy, Massachusetts for art and creative writing BostonMamas.comworkshops (science-, art-, and humanities-themed) for the general age-group 7-12.  Our aim is to provide creative art and writing workshops for children eager to learn, with a passion to grow in the visual or language arts. Visit our About page for a sense of who we are and what we are trying to accomplish.
