The Princeton Symphony Orchestra (PSO) invited us to create art for a family series performance that they held this month on the Princeton University campus.
The Education Coordinator, Carol Burden, is wonderful to work with and I am so glad to have had the chance to participate.
We were sent the book "The Great Migration" which is a story accompanied by American painter, Jacob Lawrence's paintings from his Migration series. As we read through the book and looked at his work, we identified his landscapes and the story he was telling about The Great Migration via his paintings depicting travel.
My students created their own batik landscapes and depictions of travel for this project. I hadn't done a batik project in a little while so it was quite fun to share this process with my love bugs.
The 70 or so batiks will be hanging in Pennington for a few weeks. I have to say, I can't wait to get them back and stare at them.
