NAC and The Ink Well Foundation

We adore the NAC kids and envy their incredible skills!  Every time we visit with them they bring innovative ideas and techniques to the table.  This time we made cut-out mobiles of the kids’ favorite characters, then suspended them from string and letting them soar through the air.  The kids invented new ways to get the mobiles to hang right, drew a cubist Sponge Bob, a perfect Angelika, and colored Cookie Monsters, Bat Mans and tons of other flying characters in a way that showed they were mid-action by smearing colors, using action lines and bent perspective lines.  You guys are amazing!  Thank you to Ray Alma, Jeanine Henderson, Franz Palomares, Ed Steckley, and Elizabeth Winter for volunteering and to Ethan and the NAC staff.
