BERRY good

Painting with food is fun.  About 15 years ago, I was a gallerist faced with the challenge of creating a curriculum for day camp that would teach children concepts & techniques employed in abstract painting.  Again & again we found that painting with berries was the biggest success.  It bypassed brush skills which are a challenge for kids under 6, and it relieved parents’ worries about the toxicity of paint.  And of course, teaching other people’s children to play with their food is always fun, ha.  This Call is all about painting, but using berries isn’t required.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from The University of Southern Mississippi Museum of Art (Hattiesburg, MS) for the 2017 National Juried Painting Exhibition. This is a great academic show with a well-known juror & no commission.  This is a great opportunity…
