The students at City Park Movement and Art shared their Michael Guidry inspired art with me and I did a short painting demo.
I get very excited when I see young people inspired to make art. I can remember being very interested in looking at paintings in the big books at the public library, especially the works of Picasso, but I stayed away from making art as a child. You see, my older brother was a skilled artist and I couldn't help comparing my weak efforts to his, it shut me down artistically. I had to have my own thing, I was going to be the athlete.
Indra Ozols teaches art classes at City Park Movement and Art in New Orleans, and she had her students create paintings inspired by my body of work. (I am so honored!) The students made decisions about composition, patterned backgrounds and the main Subject. The end results were dynamic, thoughtful, and impressive.
