Beulah Park Students Showcase Art
With the help of Beulah Park's art teacher, Ms. Kathleen Hunt, 60 students were given the opportunity to showcase their art for decor purposes at the Zeta Phi Beta -- 2019 Zakanda Scholarship Fundraiser on March 30, 2019, at the Double Tree Hilton in Mundelein, Illinois. The event was an opportunity for Zeta Phi Beta to raise money to provide scholarships to exemplary young ladies in the Lake County community. To prepare for this showcasing, fifth grade students learned about Adinkra cloth from Ghana and Pop Artist Roy Lichtenstein. After learning more about Adinkra cloth, students were able to mirror similar designs by designing and carving a stamp from linoleum, printing their symbol on a watercolor painting, and then creating their patterns using colored sharpies. With inspiration from Roy Lichtenstein, students used Ben-Day dots, dark outlines, and primary colors to mix Pop Art with their favorite superhero. After Beulah's artists completed their artwork, Ms. Hunt had each class arrange their artwork on a display for the fundraiser. With the help of supportive and encouraging teachers such as Ms. Hunt, nothing can stop Beulah Park's artists.
