Art on Stage! Performs at Campbell Elementary School

On March 15th, Freestyle Arts transformed Campbell Elementary School’s gymnasium into a full on art studio as they presented Art On Stage!,an AH visual art assembly. From New York City to Metuchen, NJ the  group traveled with paint, brushes, canvases, wood, drills and studio lights.  The Freestyle Arts duo was set and ready to get started but before creating on-the-spot artwork with the students, Greg Vande Hey and his partner Leviticus encouraged them to embrace their inner artist.

As a result of two back-to-back programs, four visual art pieces were produced. Collectively, the Freestyle Arts team and the student audience created two canvas paintings and two sculptures, which the Principal mentioned would be displayed around the school. See pictures of the artwork below.

Art On Stage! is not only interactive and fun but the students at Campbell Elementary learned a lot about making art, art history and self-expression through art. To learn more about Art On Stage! and to book it for your school contact:
