Beacon Student Art is Going to Chicago!
Beacon student art will be displayed at the lovely Intercontinental Chicago O'Hare Hotel in the lobby art gallery from May 22-26 in Rosemont, Illinois, including during the art reception on Wednesday, May 22.  Dr. Jackie Marquette, art curator for AutismOne and organizer of the "Brilliance of Autism" art exhibit, will also be mentioning Beacon on the Chicago FOX News on May 20!

Students of Beacon Day School have been lending their hands to contributions of artwork at recent events! Beacon art instructor Juli Inagi is happy to announce that Beacon will be participating in the Very Special Arts (VSA) Art Exhibition, which is presented by VSA California of Orange County and the Orange County Department of Education at the Westfield Main Place Shopping Center. The dates are April 20 through May 12, 2013. This event celebrates the artistic accomplishments of individuals with disabilities. Beacon student artwork will be displayed April 20-21. The festival hours on Saturday, April 20 are 11 am-4 pm. The festivities include artistic performances by local groups and activity tables placed throughout the mall.

Among the pieces that may be displayed, we are sharing these with you now: To the Stars by Brian, using string printmaking, and Floating Leaves by Coco, using watercolor salt painting.

It's almost time! We had reported in a previous edition of the Beacon Blast that, under the kind coordination of Beacon art instructor Juli Inagi, Beacon students would be contributing their artwork to "The Art of Helping" Children's Art Auction, which is being held by Help Me Grow, Orange County. Help Me Grow connects children and families to services that enhance the development, behavior, and learning of children from birth through five years old who live in Orange County.

Save the date! On March 13 from 6:00- 8:00 pm, attendees will gather in Santa Ana at Room & Board Home Furnishings at the South Coast Plaza Village for appetizers and beverages. So, please come show your support of Help Me Grow and our wonderful Beacon students and their pretty artwork!

  Tulips and Dinosaurs were from our printmaking series. For these pieces, the students carved "valleys" into meat trays and then inked them with paint rollers to get the linoleum block print effect. Students were offered stencils and pictures for inspiration.

  Brushed Poinsettias and Brian's Impressionist Flowers: Using removable shelf paper, we cut out petal patterns and then used sponges to
paint around the mask. After the background paint was dry, we removed the masking paper and then painted the masked area with tempera paint.

  Koala and Oh No! was from our printmaking series, using yarn to form our mountains. A watercolor wash was used for the background, and then the yarn pattern was inked and placed onto the background, creating the print.

  Frankenstein - a lesson in symmetry. Two pieces of string were dipped in paint. The students placed the string on one side of the paper. The paper was then folded in half, and then, while one hand was pressed on the paper, the other hand pulled out the yarn. The picture is basically symmetrical, and your imagination can name the figure.

  Fire in the Sky. For this fall picture, we used a watercolor wash sprinkled with a coarse salt. The salt absorbs the color off the page and then is brushed off. After that, the tree is then applied with a thin glue mixture.

  Love is in the Air. This art piece was created with a crayon-resist technique. Students drew designs on the paper with a white crayon and then used watercolor to paint over the page. The wax resists the color and remains white.
