An art exhibition created by art students from Woodbrook Elementary will open in the Carmel Arts Council’s Children’s Art Gallery on November 4. This exhibition is the result of a project based on the Amazon rainforest.
Art students from Woodbrook began this school year studying many different aspects of the Amazon rainforest; its location, climate and the various types of plants and animals that occupy the rainforest.
Following these lessons the students focused on creating a specific component of the rainforest or an animal. Some of the subjects depicted ranged from the rainforest landscape, to poison dart frogs, sloths, snakes, birds and butterflies. In assembling this exhibit, the students worked with a variety of media to capture and create the subjects of their art projects.
The Woodbrook Elementary Exhibit opens in the Carmel Arts Council’s Children’s Art Gallery November 4 and closes November 27.

Our High School Division has created a lively mural on the wall outside of Soho Cafe along the Monon Trail in Carmel. Two high school artists created, designed, and helped carry out the work to create this outstanding community mural.
It took them a few meetings to project the image onto the wall and to outline it and then they held painting sessions so far. As many as 10 high school students could be found painting at any one time, along with walkers along the Monon or patrons at SoHo Cafe who wanted to add their mark!
This student division of the Carmel Arts Council has worked well together since the beginning, sharing ideas, collaborating on community projects, and adding a spark to the Carmel Arts Council events.
