About the Artist
In 2015 The Art Spot is celebrating 20 years in business! Offer your schools and organizations the exciting experience of an Arts residency with Bruce and Joanne Hunter – award winning visual artists, founders and owners of The Art Spot, graduates of Pratt Institute, named as Art Advocates for the Millennium by the Connecticut Commission on the Arts. The Hunters facilitate projects with children that integrate directly with curriculum topics. Excelling at designing custom projects for individual classrooms or entire school populations, combining visual arts with any academic curriculum, Bruce and Joanne ignite their student’s creativity and artistic expression. You may mix and match a variety of projects in a day’s or week’s residency. Please inquire about opportunities for the Hunters to facilitate any specific art projects your school might already have in mind.
Plex Murals (Grades K-12)
Create a back-painted plexi-glass mural with the Hunters. Choose your curriculum theme and your students will research the topic, design and then paint a mural that your school will be proud to hang in their hallway. An exciting cooperative project that fosters creative collaboration among students.
Mosaic Murals (Grades K-12)
A wonderful opportunity for your students to create large scale artwork based on any curriculum. They will learn how to present graphic images and work in scale, using colored tiles in this project. Students will love working with their peers to create a lasting piece of artwork for their school.
Other Project Choices:
Choosing from a very broad range of art– sculpture, painting, printmaking, etc.
The Hunters custom design Culturally Themed Residencies (Asian, Chinese, African, Native American), Nature Themed Residencies (Botanical, Animal) and City/Town Themed Residencies. Material Fees will be determined on size and number of students involved.
