Art-lovers and artists-at-heart are invited to witness a behind-the-scenes look at Russian artist Sergey Fedotov’s unusual painting techniques, as he creates a masterpiece right before their very eyes. Immediately following, he will host a lecture and discussion. A Russian translator will be on-site and the public is invited to attend.
Fedotov had a successful career as a physicist in Russia, while exploring painting with visual harmony and combining abstract expressionist theory and narrative subject matter. The reactions to his hobby were strong enough to compel the artist to pursue art full time, and soon thereafter he earned international recognition and a dedicated following of collectors and critics.
CCE uses arts integration to merge the arts with academics by incorporating hands-on projects to enhance children’s knowledge of math, science, literacy and more. Arts integration encourages creative thinking and problem solving skills. CCE works with children all over Palm Beach County, mostly in disadvantaged neighborhoods. Its newly-opened building in Northwood Village will give the Center a centralized location for in-house programming, in addition to the community outreach for which it has long been known.
