For August’s artist of the month gallery at El Progreso Memorial Library, budding young artist Alicia Teague will have her paintings on display.
Ten-year-old Teague started painting when she was 3, after her grandmother introduced her to the art form. Since then, Teague has found her passion lies in abstract painting.
Though she tries to paint realistic pieces, she said she’s ‘not very proud of those.’ With abstract painting, at least, Teague can experiment with color.
“It’s my first time having my paintings on display at the library,” Teague said. “It’s almost like having my paintings on display in a museum.”
Teague works with watercolors, oil pastels, crayons, acrylic paints and Sharpie. Permanent, messy, loud colors, as she explained it. Similarly, Teague likes art forms that allow her to paint with her fingers. And slime.
