Liberty Arts encourages youngsters to stretch the truth during current Explorations art education program.

Grade school students get to engage in a little manipulation while visiting Liberty Arts’ current exhibition, “Stretching The Truth.”

The students start with a familiar image of the American space landing, featuring an astronaut planting a flag on the moon…

…then, digging into a pile of random resource material, they let their fertile imaginations run wild as they recreate, revamp and repurpose the scene.

No two pieces end up alike as the kids cut, paste, draw, paint, glue, and scribble to their heart’s content.

At the end of the session, we have an awesomely outrageous collection of fun, wild, hilarious works of art in which the “Truth” of the original image (an astronaut on the moon) has been completely stretched beyond belief.

Liberty Arts Explorations art education program takes place on Tuesday’s during scheduled exhibition weeks throughout the school year. If your elementary grade class is interested in scheduling visits in 2012, please call Liberty Arts at 530-842-0222.
