From the St. Augustine Art Association
St. Augustine, FL â€” An exhibit of whimsical art by students from throughout St Augustine will be featured through Thursday, July 16th at the St Augustine Art Association, 22 Marine St, downtown St Augustine.
Nearly 100 students attended art camp, taught by professional artists and educators.
This year’s themes included â€œCamphibians,â€ led by acclaimed graphic artists Don and Tina Trousdell.
The students learned about endangered frogs as they created mix-media artwork. According to Trousdell, Â frogs and toads are dying off at alarming rates, meaning they could disappear in our lifetime.
Visitors will also enjoy Don Trousdellâ€™s “Ribbet, Ribbet,” an educational collection of original cut-canvas art about frogs on display through July 17.
â€œThread to the Past,â€ a camp based on Native American art, Â inspired students to create storytelling totems with fiber, photographs and ornaments. In the â€œPirates of Pens and Brushesâ€ camp, students created pirate costumes and portrait selfie paintings on canvas.
