Pastels at the Cleveland Museum of Art, Watercolorist Patrick Dew, Making of a Ballerina & Ballet Shoes
CLEVELAND MUSEUM OF ART: as fall colors turn drab and dreary with the onset of winter, the Cleveland Museum of Art is brightening things up with the exhibit Pure Color – that celebrates vivid pastels from the late 19th and early 20th centuries
WATERCOLORIST PATRICK DEW: loves the movies, especially old melodramas - taking iconic scenes from the silver screen and turning them into large portraits. His passion for films led him to create a unique painting process that he calls a wet-print, that allows him to direct movies his way. The story comes to us from ideastream’s David C. Barnett.
MAKING OF A BALLERINA: Juan Trujillo is a native Colombian ballet dancer who now resides in Kansas city, Missouri with his wife Stefani Schrimpf, both danced with the Kansas city ballet in their early careers and now teach young dancers not just the steps, but the discipline that the art requires.
BALLET SHOES: in ballet, there’s one tool that every dancer needs, that’s as unique as the dancers themselves. The story comes to us from our PBS affiliate KUTH in Houston, Texas…
