Elyse MacRury, this year’s student poster artist for the Edmonds Arts Festival, created “Springy” with oil pastels and watercolor paint. Elyse is in kindergarten at Edmonds Elementary School and entered her painting via the “Open Class” process, where any student can enter artwork for the poster competition.
Posters featuring Elyse’s art will be available for purchase at the Festival, June 15-16-17.
And here, courtesy of the Edmonds Arts Festival, is a question-and-answer session with Elyse:
What would you like to say about “Springy”?
It’s a boy feeding swans, see, there is food in the water. The boy does not have a name. Swans don’t have names, either.
What kind of art do you like to do best?
I like to draw.
If you could be any crayon in the crayon box, what color would you be?
The rainbow crayon. It’s pretty.
What would it be like if there was no art in school?
(Horrified glare) That would be NO fun!
