Week 20 – A Year of Flowers 2015 – Springtime Big Chicken

A Year of Flowers 2015 РWeek 20 at Emily Lupita Studio

The Big Chicken is a famous local landmark here in Marietta, Georgia. This week I drew my version of this charming giant chicken-shaped building surrounded by blooming Spring flowers.

The original watercolor & ink painting is now hanging in the Marietta Square Artist’s Attic up on the Historic Marietta Square. Art Walks are the first Friday of every month all summer long and a great chance to stop by and see the famous chicken in person.

May your garden be full of flowers,

I made this peacock in blue & green. And then, of course, in purple & pink.

These are dancing roosters I painted after making a similar design using line drawings & illustration as a custom design for a dear friend.

An Interview With The Youth Museum

This Week At Emily Lupita Studio РAn Interview With The Youth Museum:

I had the wonderful experience of being invited to The Youth Museum here in Marietta. This non-profit museum is located near Marietta High School in a beautiful and serene forest park full of lovely trees. Ms. Anita Vannice, the 2014 Auction Co-Chair, was a wonderful host and showed me around the museum.

I donated one of my original Lupita watercolor paintings for the silent auction at the museum’s annual fundraising event this coming weekend. I chose the “Lupita with Pink Dragonfly Wings” painting because children love bright colors and this is a very bright & joyful Lupita.

The Youth Museum, Marietta, GA – Interview

Thank you to Ms. Anita Vannice for this great interview!

What is the mission of The Youth Museum? 

The Youth Museum is a non-profit educational resource center offering children the opportunity to learn about significant historical, social, and cultural events through instructional activities which integrate arts and education while emphasizing personal involvement and participation.

What age groups does it serve and how can tours be arranged?
Our current exhibit,¬†‚ÄúAmerica’s Pathways to Independence‚ÄĚ is based on the Georgia Performance Standards for 4th grade, and our tours are primarily made up of 4th grade classes.¬† However, some schools choose to send 3rd graders or even 5th graders if they are covering this time period in their social studies class that year.

To arrange a tour for your class, please call the Youth Museum at 770-427-2563.  We do 2 tours a day (weekdays only), 9:30am and 11:30am.

3e41eed5b1fcb13580b9b5a232a4efb2_duu6_5ust
What are some activities visitors experience when they come to the museum?

Students who come to the Youth Museum will see and participate in historical events that led to the eventual winning of our independence.  This is done through skits that are integrated into the story being told by the costumed docent.  Students will see and participate in historical events such as protest meetings, the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere’s ride, the writing of the Declaration of Independence, the Battle of Yorktown, and the writing of the Constitution, just to name a few.

When I took the tour, you described how you integrate performance art into the history lessons. I thought this was so wonderful! Can you talk more about this and how performance art can add value to learning?

The performance comes in when students get to put on costumes and portray actual people from this time period in our history in the format of a small skit that is acting out an actual historical event.  When we train the students for their skit, we also get an opportunity to talk about their particular person and also fill in some details regarding the event.  This one-on-one interaction along with the performance and watching of the skits gives texture to the material students learn in the classroom.  It gives the history more context and shape so that it is no longer just facts read from a book.

The Youth Museum also puts on a puppet show about historical events.

 

The annual fundraiser for the museum is coming up soon. How can people get involved with the fundraiser to support the museum?

Please come out and enjoy our 12th annual Barbecue in the Woods and Silent Auction on September 6, 5-8pm at the museum. (Located at 649 Cheatham Hill Drive, Marietta, GA.)  Eat some great barbecue provided by BBQ-1, listen to music by the Old Mill Road Band, and even bid on our silent auction items.  Tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for kids (6-12). We have great silent auction items such as tickets to various events around Marietta, an overnight at the Lodge & Spa at Callaway Gardens, a hot air balloon ride, some great wine (individual bottles and baskets) and, of course, some great art by local artists… including Emily Lupita!
You can call the museum to reserve your tickets at 770-427-2563 or you may pay at the door.  Please park at the Marietta High School parking lot (1171 Whitlock Ave.) or in the Kennesaw Mountain NBP Cheatham Hill Drive lot.  Shuttle transportation will be provided.  This is a rain or shine event.

 

 

Sending wishes for a beautiful week ahead,

New Art Jewelry Collection

This Week At Emily Lupita Studio – New Art Jewelry Collection:

I’ve been a busy bee these last few weeks working to finish my new art jewelry collection.

Artist Emily Lupita of Emily Lupita Studio creating handcrafted artwork jewelry wearable art¬†It’s been fun to see the individual¬†pieces emerge from the rather intensive hands-on process of creating each pendant and set of earrings. These pictures show the jewelry in several different stages such as a waxed print, a print transfixed¬†to the glass, and the final glass design being set into the metal bases.

Here’s a view of my studio table as I packaged up all the finished pieces for sale.

“Lupita World” Art Series

This Week At Emily Lupita Studio – The View From my Art Desk:

I have a new set¬†of watercolor paintings rolling out…I’m calling it¬†the “Lupita World” Art Series.

Lupita Hugs the World

The series is made up of 15 paintings – all featuring my Lupita world & made with extra bright Irodori antique palette watercolors.

Lupita Gives the Gift of Peace

My idea with this series was to create a group of paintings that all have a similar feeling and energy about them, focusing in on one design aspect (the globe), while still maintaining a sense of individual uniqueness.

Lupita Hugs the World

As I progressed, somewhere around my 7th or 8th painting, the process became more like meditation for me.

By repeating the design, I gained confidence that I knew how to draw it Рreally knew it (especially around my 11th & 12th painting) and that freed me to think more creatively about the designs inside the kimonos.

And I started¬†experimenting more with color, resulting in my very first “golden” Lupita. The combination of gold, browns,¬†and a pale antique blue…I had never tried it before & I ended up just falling in love with it.

The original paintings in this series will be showing at the MSAA Gallery until the end of August. Stop by to see them displayed in matching white gallery frames Рthey look so wonderful all together on the wall.

You can shop for an original custom made painting from this collection, plus many more art prints and cards in my online Art Shop.
