Tim and Lisa Kluttz Study

The 7th Grade worked on folk art last week in art class.  We talked about folk art and the Kluttz couple, Tim and Lisa.

Here is a photo of Tim and Lisa Kluttz.
  
From their website Kluttz Folk Art, I learned that Tim and Lisa are self-taught folk artists who share their farm/studio with two cats and other assorted creatures.  The couple began painting collaboratively about ten years ago after being inspired by the Outsider Art Collection at the House of Blues, Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Both love bright colors and use found, reclaimed and recycled materials to create happy, colorful and sometimes whimsical art work.  Tim is the ultimate collector and "recycler'' so there is never a shortage of materials.  The couple's styles are complimentary and favorite subjects are cats, flowers, dogs, chickens, mermaids and the Statue of Liberty.  Their work can be found in galleries and at art shows throughout the Southeast and of course at their home studio, St. Peter's Farm.
Directions:
I shared the information above about the Tim and Lisa Kluttz.
I told the kids to do their version of a piece of Kluttz folk art.
They drew with pencil and painted with acrylic.
I encouraged them to use the space on the paper and draw big!
Also, they were encouraged to mix colors, as well as, use tints and shades.
I like the results!  
Thanks for the inspiration, Tim and Lisa!

''The Pig in the Van Gogh Sky" by Karson is clever, funny, and RICH!

And here is a very clever song by a man named CASH...(Cash, rich, get it?)...Hey, just trying to be clever like Karson.
