Romero Britto inspires Richstone Students
Friends of Redondo Beach Arts supports the work of eight docents who travel monthly to the Richstone Center in Hawthorne to present Hands On Art projects for their K – 8 after school program. Students learn art history and are able to experience a variety of art media.
The project for May was adapted from the Brazilian artist Romero Britto whose work was influenced by cubism and pop art into a vibrant style that critics say “exudes warmth, optimism and love.” Students began with something they love, then used Cray-Pas oil pastels to surround it with bright colors and pop art designs.
Below is a gallery of student work.
