Boston University’s art education students extended an invitation to Morse students to come for a free drawing class this past Saturday. Twelve Morse students, 2nd-5th grade, participated with about 50 other area elementary students. The groups were sent to 3 BU galleries: the Sherman gallery, 808 gallery, and BU gallery. BU students walked the kids through the galleries, highlighting important elements of the shows. Back in the studios, the elementary students created artwork inspired by the art they viewed in the galleries. Here are some of the Morse students at work, creating landscapes (the group that went to the 808 gallery) and horror movie posters (the group that went to the BU gallery).
