ART | IOWA : INSPIRED BY LANDSCAPE – Art workshops for kids!
In conjunction with the current exhibit, ART | IOWA: INSPIRED BY LANDSCAPE, at the Old Capitol Museum, Emily will present a series of workshops designed for children, ages 4+, that place an emphasis on using recycled or every-day materials for making works of art inspired by Iowa. Each workshop is free to attend, but a donation of $3.00 per participant is suggested. Space is limited; please call the Old Capitol Museum at 319-335-0548 to reserve a spot.
Emily Schaum, graduating senior in Art History and Studio Arts, has long been concerned with the environment and tried to be conscious of the impact of her decisions in everyday life. When she was a child she learned from her mother to look to at her surroundings for art materials, as well as an appreciation for hand crafts. In her own art, she likes to incorporate, and be inspired by found objects, both natural and manmade, and re-uses discarded materials which help to keep her use of harmful materials low. Since beginning her studies at The University of Iowa, the Iowa landscape has increased her love of being in and observing nature to an earnest need, with its wildlife, gentle hills, wide and ever-changing skies, and generous sunshine throughout its distinct seasons, each beautiful in itself.
All programs are free and open to the public and will be held at the Old Capitol Museum. Pre-registration may be required for select programs. To register for a program or to inquire about the exhibit, please call the Old Capitol Museum at 319-335-0548. For information about the Old Capitol Museum, visit www.uiowa.edu/oldcap
