SPY members welcomed two young people to July’s youth event, where a new art form, created by Mike Foster, was tried out. Mike shared his artwork and method at Time Together and it became the inspiration for this month’s SPY event.
Looking at Mike’s artwork
“Wow!” and “That’s great!” were just two comments made by the young people looking at the images Mike spotted as he looked deeper into nature.
Taking a photo in the park
Each team, armed with a phone, used their observational skills and imagination to look deeper into nature and capture what they saw in photos. Trees, flowers, plants, pond and sky were selected.
Trying the new art form Artists at work
Printing the photos and adding tracing paper on top allowed the young people to express what they saw, as they looked deeper into nature. Ingenious imagination and artistic skills produced amazing results!
