"No Fear, Only Fun"

Nine art students from Loudoun County High School, in Leesburg, Virginia, Oakton High School, in Vienna, Virginia, and Morgantown High School, in Morgantown, West Virginia, came together at Oakton High School's art studio on the weekend of July 12th, to work with Mehran Rashidfarokhy and learn some of the secrets of painting impressionist still-lifes. Painting from their imagination, and with the encouragement and advice of Mehran ("Don't be afraid of the canvas… Have fun!"), the students tested the bounds of their creativity and painted some beautiful floral arrangements and a very abstract abstract.
