Vincent van Gourd at Centennial Hall

 The NBMA and Get Art continued their weekly art lessons for kids at the Centennial Hall on July 18, this time allowing kids to paint on their food. Andras Hoffer sets out to coat his gourd with no particular design, preferring to see what he can make of it by the end.

NORWAY BAY July 18, 2017
Tuesday’s evening art events continued in Norway Bay last week, this time introducing children to the idea that vegetables don’t have to be just a dinnertime bore, but can also serve as a blank canvas.
Around ten children from the area came out to the Get Art event, painting gourds with their friends in a variety of fashions and colours.
Artists mixed their paint in plastic egg cartons, using the cups as a palette, and designed their gourd as they pleased, with many deciding on a more abstract choice. Some referred to their art in reference to round objects from pop culture, such as the Death Star from Star Wars.
