Art Night with Robert Rauschenberg

Just got back from spending a couple of hours with some amazing little artists! We learned about Robert Rauschenberg and created "green" assemblages using cereal boxes as our ground. We also ate pizza and had a ton of fun!

We mixed our own green to paint our 'green' art.

Apparently blue, yellow & black make "Army green" even if you live in a Navy town.

The different approaches of young artists is always fascinating to me. This was created by a 4-year-old.

This 11-year-old's work includes several 'concepts', as she put it: a path of germs, a mangrove tree and spaghetti on a table.

Art Night Now 'Green' AND Gold

Sign up for Art Night and get a lucky, golden art coin for the local Art-o-mat!

Art-o-mat originated in Winston-Salem where there are LOTS of old cigarette machines. What do you do with them? Retrofit them to dispense art! Artists from all over the world create original works that are vended through these machines for the price of a $5 golden token. You could get a sculpture, painting or even jewelry!

Norfolk's Art-o-mat is at Ms.Magoo's House of Style Salon (No, I'm not making this up) located in the Hague Towers. Here are the rest of the details:
