What is our 10th children's show all about?
This year's theme is Spectrum of Black & White. The stereotype of black & white artwork is that it is the bland, rudimentary form of art that gives way to vibrant colour; however, people like Ansel Adams, Jackson Pollock and Picasso overturned that idea with bold monochromatic paintings and photos. In addition, the constraints of working in black & white force us to creatively problem-solve and trick our viewer into imagining colour where there is none. Our talented students have been working hard to create original works based on two opposing ideas: nature illustration and surrealist drawings. Both of these themes are difficult to portray even with colour, but the effect in black & white is absolutely stunning.
