Tampa artist Sigrid Tidmore visited the students of
Community Stepping Stones Wednesday to give the first of a special two-part lesson in watercolors and how the oil spill is affecting the environment.
Sigrid opened by asking the class how the oil spill made them feel. Hands went up and answers were blurted out.
"Sad!""Mad!""Depressed!" (This comment may have been from one of the several USF fine art interns).
Sigrid then asked: "What are you going to do about this? When you grow up?"
Again the answers flew, this time just from the kids.
"Make a law!""Don't litter!""Get a better car!"
In this first session the students learned
techniques of painting with watercolors and traced starfish.
