Meet Christine Thornton, art teacher, studio owner, wife and mom. She began her career as a school art teacher but now teaches art lessons at her home studio and also at libraries throughout the Chicago area. She started as many of you have – enjoying all kinds of art like drawing, painting, sculpting, making jewelry, you name it!
Christine frequently visits Fountaindale Public Library District to lead painting and drawing programs for teens and for adults. This month, she’ll return to the Vortex for How to Draw Mexican Sugar Skulls. She’ll give a brief slideshow about Día de Muertos, the Mexican Day of the Dead and the traditional of sugar skulls or decorated skulls as a part of Día de Muertos celebrations and altars. Then, she’ll be on hand to guide program attendees in drawing their own colorful skulls.
Here’s some photos from last years event!
