In October, Seven Lakes High School art students and their teacher, Angie Bartuska, collaborated with painter Ray Phillips to create two large canvases for Texas Childrenâ€™s Hospital. Ray Phillips painted with the students and taught them his technique for layering paint andÂ screened images on canvas using acrylic paint. The studentsÂ requested certain imageryÂ that wouldÂ be child-centered and playful. Ray PhillipsÂ had those images transferred onto large screensÂ prior to the workshopÂ then walked them through the process.
His studio is locatedÂ just off The Strand inÂ Galveston, Texas, so after painting, several students went down to the beach with Ms. Bartuska and photographed children playing in the water.Â These children were then painted onto the canvases back in the classroom.

The paintings will be hanging in the new Texas Childrenâ€™s Hospital West Campus located at Barker Cypress and I-10. Please mention you found this on www.KatyMagazine.com.
