Tryptich October SliverArt of the Athlete

Art Inspired by the 2016 Summer Olympics

Art of the Athlete, opens September 30, 2016. This show features a variety of artwork created by the students at Prairie Trace Elementary who were inspired by the 2016 Summer Olympics and the sports they enjoy.

Prairie Trace art students, ranging from Kindergarten through Fifth grade, studied the Olympic symbols, their colors and the history of the Olympic Games.

Students practiced modeling sports poses and then recreated those poses by drawing and sketching what they saw. The artworks were created with paint and mixed media. Some students created sculptures of the sports poses.

The Art of the Athlete exhibit closes at 4pm on October 30, 2016.
