Beverly Buchanan's shacks

Beverly Buchanan is an artist who grew up in the rural south.  She has focused her career as an artist on celebrating the spirit of the people who built these shelters.  Her colorful drawings and paintings have lots of textural energy, and her sculptures are made of cast-off materials, just as the real shacks are.  We tried her style by drawing a shack based on a geometric form and added texture with an assortment of texture boards that are rubbed over with crayon.

  1. All I can say is Wow! For elementary school kids to start on art at such a young age and learn about great artists and their methods is fantastic.
