My blogging tutee Kelvin, participated in his first art show recently at his after-school program, Ability First, in Pasadena. He produced five acrylic paintings and exhibited the framed prints alongside many other artists with special needs for the silent auction.
His pieces pictured above left to right, included: Mole Rat, People, Beverly Hills Car, San Francisco Car, and Las Vegas Strip.
Here's Kelvin standing by one of his favorite pieces, a football-themed collage, that they created collaboratively as a group at Ability First for the show.
Kelvin and a few of the other artists also helped build a Lego City the morning before the art show with Danni from Ability First.
I bid on artist Thomas Doyle's Blue Splatter piece above, which made the perfect birthday present for my friend, Nerea. I also really loved these watercolored butterflies below.
Here's Kelvin with his family above.
I love the vibrant colors of many of the pieces by the other artists, and how they exhibited mixed media pieces including this Jumping Man ceramic clay snail and shapes.
Here's another piece that was created collaboratively with several different artists, and it's a triptych painted with different strokes and messages, including my favorite: Focusing on Capabilities.
