Winn Lozar, Young Artist


Read Along with Winn Lozar’s Artist Talk


Hi. My name is Winn Lozar and I’m 9 years old, turning 10 this summer. Whenever I’m thinking of what kind of art to make, I get inspired by people I know that are always creative and I use ideas that are kind of like theirs. Also ideas just pop out of my imagination. 

I like going to the art studio because usually in school art I make art in the library and you have to be clean. But in the studio I can make a mess if I want to. Making art relaxes me and gives me a break from all the other crazy things happening and I can just be myself. No one interrupts me and I’m not bothered by anyone. 

“The Giant Ice Cream” is the title of one of my favorite pieces. I love ice cream and also I know a lot of other people like ice cream too. I used a layer technique here. First I painted warm colors and after it was dry I put cool white and blue and some other colors like copper. I made jaggedy lines and textures with my paint brushes and a tool with teeth on the sides. I also used a round sponge brush to make circles. I hope when people look at “The Giant Ice Cream” it makes them hungry and delighted. I made a double scoop because I wanted it to be really huge!

Thank you for listening to my talk and for supporting the organizations we chose to donate to, like the Grand Street Theater!
