Imagine what your face would look like if you were a flower. That was one of the tasks given to students at Scribble Art Studio to create the "Imagine Me" exhibit.
"We had the kids look at themselves in the mirror to draw their portrait," said Carrie Christian, co-owner of Scribble Art Studio.
"We had them examine their eye color, hair color and facial features like you do for a traditional portrait, but then we put a twist on it and had the students imagine themselves as something different each week. We did Lego figures, lions, flowers, bugs, lots of fun stuff."
The students will get a chance to show off their re-imagined self-portraits with a special artist reception at Blick Art Materials on July 26. The art will remain on display through Aug. 31.
The show will debut nearly 70 works of art by students ages 3-15, and Christian said they have about 45 students from their summer camps and classes participating in the exhibit.
Scribble Art Studio holds classes at its studios in Savannah and Pooler.
"We really want to focus on the kids for this event," Christian said. "This is the first time most of the children have had artwork hanging on a wall for an exhibit. They are so excited.
"It's so cute at that age to see their work up. Some of them are nervous, too."
