This project at Extreme STEAM Science Kids was inspired by artist David Hockney. He is a famous British Pop artist that was often inspired by swimming pools. Hockney noticed the reflections and patterns caused light and movement in water. Extreme STEAM Science Campers studied the human form and discussed many of the different strokes that they have learned to do at Swim. They each created unique water color resist pool paintings with personality!
Campers also had the opportunity to get creative on their iPads. Everyone opened a new app- called Emoji Paint. We discussed many of the elements of a landscape, and we also talked a lot about the colors and shapes of each Emoji and how we could translate those little symbols into a landscape drawing! A great time was had by all.
