purrfect portraits at sdai

This past weekend, art stars from Zamorano participated in a pet portrait and adoption event at the San Diego Art Institute in Balboa Park. This real world opportunity was held in conjunction with the museum's "Best in Show" exhibit in the main gallery. Students were asked to observe the animals in the museum and draw one of them- style and concept was wide open. When the students completed their drawings, they were added to the exhibit on a temporary wall in the museum.

The kids had a blast! Principal Murchison came out to support our students and gave it a go as well. To top it all off, one of the dogs available for adoption has very likely found a new home... ours:)

Special thanks to Education Director, Meegan Nolan and Museum Director, Ginger Shulick Porcella for making this art making and exhibition opportunity possible for our Zamo kids.

Also, thanks to our students' families for getting their art stars to the museum so they could participate in this special event.
