Mid-July marked the return of the Woodson Art Museum’s popular Summer Art Sessions for young artists ages five through eight and nine through twelve. Abundant Future’s cultivated plant subjects and artist Ginny Ruffner’s imagined botanical landscape served as inspiration for half-day sessions of art making in the Museum’s classroom studio and sculpture garden. The younger “Micro-Greens” worked in two-dimensions while older participants focused on three-dimensional projects.
The birch tree allée offered a vista as enchanting as its name evokes. Over 100 white trunks lined a gravel and stone path stretching 550 feet toward a stately view of northern Ohio hills made all the more lush and green by the many days of rain that punctuated our visit.
