Exhibit springs for flowers

Camptonville School will host a “Bouquets to Art” exhibit from 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday at the school, inspired by the annual “Bouquets to Art” exhibit at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco.

The entire school, along with staff and community members are participating in the exhibit.

“During these days of budget cuts, art is usually one of the first things to go, but the staff and school board have consistently supported my art program for the last 14 years,” said Katie O’Hara, art teacher at Camptonville School. “I am really lucky to work here.”

Foothill Flowers and Grass Valley Florists and will donate arrangements for the exhibit.

Camptonville’s kindergarten and first-grade students are creating cut paper bouquets in the style of Henri Matisse, as well as some “multiples” of flowers in the style of Andy Warhol.

The second-, third- and fourth-grade students have made multiple prints of flowers, in the style of Warhol, and have created individual bouquets of “flowers” to go with a masterpiece.

The fifth and sixth graders are using Pablo Picasso’s drawing of two hands holding a simple bouquet of flowers as an inspiration, and are creating hand held bouquets that are inspired by their favorite masterpiece.

The seventh- and eighth-grade students are creating sculptures out of a variety of materials (including flowers), that interpret their favorite masterpiece. O’Hara said the 7-8 class is trying to duplicate the actual Legion of Honor “Bouquets to Art” exhibit.

Camptonville School is approximately 35 minutes north of Nevada City on Highway 49.
