Sunflower faces are made of yellow paper plates with children’s hand-shapes cut out of paper and attached to plate
Local artist Gail Alexander taught a four-week art program for K -7th grades at the Bethel-Gibson Community Center. The student-artists painted, drew, and colored two-dimensional projects on paper, making “Sunflower Faces” and other brightly-colored masterpieces. They also worked in self-hardening clay to fashion three-dimensional objects such as flowers and leaves.Gail Alexander and Janibek Turganaliyev.
Gail Alexander will be teaching art to students in the 4th to 6th grades in after school programs in the Community Center. Future projects include refreshing and adding to the “Bubbles” mural on the Mobley building that faces the new Murray Park Aquatic Center, a collaboration with Arts South, the City and Baptist Health.
