Easy Breezy Summer Art

ImageOne of the best parts of living in Northern Indiana in the summertime is its close proximity to Lake Michigan and all the beauty which she provides. From the sands of Saint Joseph to the dunes of Sawyer, there is no shortage of beach or summer fun to be found. Just as the shoreline stretches for miles and miles, so too do the possibilities for easy breezy summer art projects! Put on your flip flops, grab a towel, and join us in the sand for some great ideas to keep those young minds busy!

Mom (and kids) go Pop! for F.O.B.

Coming soon…a banner featuring South Bend’s Mayor Pete – pop style!

A little while back we told you that Festival of Banners was coming, and now it’s here!  Submitted designs for this year’s theme – “Pop on Parade” – were judged, and winning designs were chosen.  But it’s right about now that the action is really underway as the selected artists are beginning to work on their original, hand-painted banners in the SBMA studios.  With only two months to go until the banners are on display in downtown South Bend, our Festival of Banners participants are busy bringing their pop art visions to life.

From now until August, we’ll be checking in with not one, but three of our Festival of Banners participants, to see what it’s like to take transform  their 4″ x 6″ submissions into banners.  The  dynamic, creative members of the Kanczuzewski family have agreed to let us look over their shoulders as we bring you an inside experience of this great community-based program.
