Eau Claire Regional Arts Council Announces ARTmobile at Phoenix Park

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

The Eau Claire Regional Arts Council is excited to announce the ARTmobile's summer schedule of free children's art projects in Phoenix Park. The ARTmobile will be under the Farmer's Market pavilion in Phoenix Park on Wednesdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and Thursdays from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The ARTmobile will also be at the Artists Market of Eau Claire on Saturday mornings from 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and on Thursday evenings at Volume One's "Sounds Like Summer" concerts.

The ARTmobile strives to connect children to the visual arts with fun and relevant art projects that have an educational aspect to them. ARTmobile instructors Jessica Lynn Lindblom and  Angela Koch have extensive backgrounds in art education and fine arts.

Lindblom and Koch have developed a series of artistic core skill projects that focus on creating art relevant to the children's lives, local culture, nature and the environment. Their goal is to give children a wide range of exposure to materials and processes including paint, crayons, pens, papier-mâché, and found materials.

"We plan to teach projects that not only allow the children to be interactive with their parents and one another, but also with the environment," explained Lindblom, who is pursuing a bachelor's degree in drawing and painting at UW-Eau Claire. "The children will be working with a variety of mediums that range from traditional materials such as paint and crayons to more ambiguous materials such as recyclables or found items."

ARTmobile projects use simple materials that are easily accessible for anyone to buy, find and recreate. The art projects are designed to be fun and interesting for all ages and skill levels - even parents! Children and parents can attend an ARTmobile session at any time; stay for as long as they like; and return again and again.

"The projects will serve as a foundation, or the first introduction to create art for many of the children that participate," said Koch, who is pursuing a bachelor's degree in art education at UW-Eau Claire. "ARTmobile is about families in the community coming together to create art and to create an appreciation for art. We hope that the workshops create an environment that harbors creativity. We imagine participants talking with each other, laughing, and being open to trying something new and different."

All ARTmobile sessions are free and open to the public. The program is supported in part by grants from Visit Eau Claire and Community Foundation of Eau Claire. For more information and a complete schedule of ARTmobile workshops go to EauClaireArts.com, or contact Rose Dolan Neill, ARTmobile director at 715-832-2787.
