Live Painting from Festa 2013


During Arts Corps’ Festa Del Arte fundraiser on March 22,2013, Seattle Public Schools’ Orca 8th grade students Camryn B., Imara F. and Ethan D., along with Arts Corps’ Creative Schools Initiative Teaching Artists Nate Herth and AmeriCorps Teaching Artist Jave Yoshimoto, created an original painting in a live visual art performance that accompanied the music, dance, and spoken word performances of the evening.

Students reflected on the evening’s theme of “Making History” by including Northwest landscapes, architecture, people, and historical events in their detailed pencil sketch for the finished work. The work celebrates the power and diversity of the arts and their deep impact on the landscape and communities of the Northwest.
