What is living in the woods? How do you know what is there? Frequently when hiking, we come upon crumbling stone walls, wells, trash heaps, fruit trees, and other evidence of former inhabitants but most of us do not realize what we are looking at. This program will show how to differentiate between the works of man and the works of nature.
Artist/Teacher Heidi Lanino Bilezikian and her students from the Hudson Valley Homeschoolers program, and Fine Arts and Creativity for Kids, welcome you to view their group show of Paper Self-Portraits and Art Books. The students were encouraged to create self-portraits and to tell a story about themselves through shape and design. Their hand-made Art Books provided a home for image gathering and an outlet for personal expression.
