YOUNG ART STUDENT IN WAC’S CHILDREN’S EXHIBITION SELLS HER WORK TO ARTIST MEMBER.
Francesca Rocco is 9 years old and attends Woodruff School in Berkeley Heights, NJ. She has been taking Drawing and Painting classes at WAC for the last five years under the instruction of Monica Schraiber Otero.
Francesca first showed an interest in Art when she was 3 years old. Besides doing artwork, Francesca likes to read, play piano, climb on the monkey bars and roller skate.
During the 2012 fall session of Enrichment Workshops at the center, Francesca created an acrylic painting entitled Sweet Dreams. The artwork was entered in the 21st Annual Children’s Juried Art Exhibition at WAC which was on display during the month of January in conjunction with the Members Show where it received many accolades.
As a result, the piece was sold to the co-president of the Contemporary Art Group, award-winning artist Linnea Rhodes who was present the opening reception and became captivated by the piece.
This is Francesca’s second sale after having sold her first piece to artist Making King two years ago.
The work reflects Francesca’s artistic talent, creativity, imagination and her special love for cats.
Gallery hours are Wednesday through Friday from 12 – 3 PM or Tuesday and Saturday by appointment only.
