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 Children’s Hospital. Ray Phillips painted with the students and taught them his technique for layering paint and screened images on canvas using acrylic paint. The students requested certain imagery that would be child-centered and playful. Ray Phillips had those images transferred onto large screens prior to the workshop then walked them through the process.

His studio is located just off The Strand in Galveston, Texas, so after painting, several students went down to the beach with Ms. Bartuska and photographed children playing in the water. These children were then painted onto the canvases back in the classroom.

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