Sea Inspired Art at Literary Lots

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne

Life of Pi by Yann Martel

The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss

What do these books have in common? The sea! Also, these works of literature, among others, are inspiring this summer’s Literary Lot in Ohio City. Literary Lots “brings magic and the power of imagination to urban kids by turning vacant, underutilized spaces into scenes from children’s books.” Art House will be providing 3 weeks of free art programming inspired by the ocean theme. Each class, instructed by a talented artist, will be held from 1-3 pm. Ready to hear what we’ll be working on this year?
