The El Paso Museum of Art (EPMA) invites the community to the unveiling of the exhibition Anatomy of the Art Process/ De Anatomia Del Proceso Del Arte, created by local students, at 2 p.m. on Saturday, December 17.
Teachers from Cooley, Hillside and Powell Elementary Schools integrated drawing activities into their lesson plans to mirror artist James Drake’s consistent practice of drawing daily, which provided students the opportunity to develop their art skills.
The project was inspired by the James Drake Exhibition, Anatomy of Drawing and Space that’s currently on display at the museum.
The exhibit is part of a fellowship the museum established to participate in the Active Learning through the Fine Arts Initiative of the El Paso Community Foundation, El Paso Independent School District Fine Arts Program and the Philosophic Systems Institute.
The initiative aims to incorporate the fundamentals of fine arts in elementary school classrooms. The goal is to encourage different approaches to engage every student, collaborating with teachers and schools to incorporate fine arts, creativity and depth of inquiry into every classroom.
The exhibition will be on display through January 16. For more information, call the El Paso Museum of Art at (915) 212-0300.
