|The “Play/ Toy” Painting Project was inspired by a gift of stuffed animals to Sandy Wilensky, instructor of the Maynard Council on Aging Senior Watercolor class, to be used as painting subjects. This led to the seniors being teamed up with Green Meadow students for artistic interpretations. The children chose meaningful toys for their acrylic on canvas paintings and the seniors chose from the toys selected by the children for their watercolor paintings.|
This project has culminated in a show of 21 pairs of “Play/Toy” paintings that can be viewed in the Roosevelt Room at the Maynard Library from July 10 – August 30. A reception will be held on Wednesday, August 28 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. This will be an exciting opportunity for the senior watercolor painters and second grade acrylic painters to meet each other.
Maynard COA painting instructor Sandy Wilensky teamed up with Susan Arcelay, Green Meadow art teacher, and Deb Holly’s class of second grade students to complete this rewarding project.
