Student Art from Swarthmore Friends Nursery School
An exhibition of mixed media art by these budding student artists will be on display from February 4 through February 28 at Swarthmore Borough Hall, 121 Park Avenue, Swarthmore. The opening reception is free and open to the public this Friday, February 4th from 5:30-7:30pm
The art at Swarthmore Friends Nursery School is process-based with a focus on fine motor development. The goal is for the children to discover different ways to create art. It just takes a little bit of guidance and off they go. Kim Scott, artist and art teacher, glowingly states, “More often than not, they will create something in a way that I never would have thought to do. Everything in the exhibit has been cut, drawn, painted, glued, and colored by the children”.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. Exhibit hours are M-Th 9am – 8pm, Fri 10am – 7pm, Sat 10am – 3pm, Sun 1 – 5pm.
Kim Scott has been teaching art to preschool and kindergarten students for 16 years or they have been teaching her. When she is not in the art room, she can be found digging in the dirt or doodling and painting in some corner of her house.
Meliss Hoy has a background in sculpture and art therapy. When she is not at SFNS, she is volunteering with Art Goes to School or SRA, dancing in her kitchen with her family, running, or sewing into the wee hours of the night.
