Art in the Castle is rolling out its second season with the help of Lily Fearon, a talented Bachelor of Fine Arts candidate at Purchase College. The monthly art classes offer 3rd-5th grade White Plains residents the opportunity to try their hand at a variety of artists' media including pencil, oil pastels, charcoal, collage material, water color and acrylic paints.
Fearon displays library books on famous artists from various periods to encourage conversation in a nurturing and fun environment. She teaches the children new techniques at each session covering concepts such as mixing colors, brush stroke, still life studies, shading and more.
Art in the Castle is one Saturday a month 10/21, 11/18 and 12/16 at 2:00 p.m. in the Trove. Registration is required and opens at 10:00 a.m. the Monday prior to the Saturday class. Register at the Compass Desk or by calling (914) 422-1476.
