Over 25 students from instructor David Kuta's art classes at Paonia's Junior and Senior High Schools will participate in a collective showing at the Creamery Arts Center in March. The show will feature sixty pieces of mostly two-dimensional student art.
The opening reception was held on Friday, March 8. The show will run through April 8.
This is a great opportunity for the community to appreciate the efforts of our young artists. Oils, pastels, pencil, colored pencil, acrylic, block prints and scratchboard will be featured.
A large number of budding art students will display their talents in simple, small-scale projects. Kuta's teaching method is aimed at developing students' basic art skills — drawing, shading, color theory, blending and exploring various two-dimensional media and techniques.
"As these students' understanding of the elements and principles of design deepens, they are given the opportunity to 'spread their wings"' — exploring their creativity and expressing themselves through art," says Kuta.
David Kuta has provided his talents to the youth of Paonia for seven years in the elementary, junior high and high school. His personal art specializes in large scale, mural-sized acrylic and oil work with an emphasis on color. Lately, Kuta has been dabbling in watercolors.
Kuta states, "The older I get, the more I find myself looking to very simple media — water color crayons, pencil and pen and ink to see where it takes me."
