Ninth graders in Tandem Friends School's Foundations of Art class, led by instructor Lou Haney, recently undertook an art project in which they responded to one of Draw Charlottesville's current prompts: "Draw a place that represents what Charlottesville means to you,""Draw a place in Charlottesville that brings you joy," or "Draw a place in Charlottesville that you would reimagine."
A few drawings include Live Arts, drawn by K.T. because "I have had many wonderful theatrical experiences there, both as an actor and audience member." L.P drew the downtown mall because "When I first moved here this was one of the first places I went to." L.F. selected The Corner because "It fills me with nostalgia since we’ve driven by it so often. It also makes me happy since my mom always tells me fun stories about The Corner back when she was a student at UVA."
We were able to hear more about the students' work during one of their (virtual) classes and had so much fun getting to know them better through art!
