Artworks by students at Sleepy Hollow Arts featured at Mason Government Center

"Snowy Mountains" by Sleepy Hollow Arts student Ella Krauss, age 11.
An art show at the Mason Government Center features artworks by Rita McCarn, founder of Sleepy Hollow Arts, along with some of her students. 

The exhibit will be up through the end of February at 6507 Columbia Pike in Annandale.  

"Sleepy Hollow Woods" by Rita McCarn.
 Sleepy Hollow Arts offers small, separate classes for children and adults that let students explore a variety of media, including pencil, charcoal, pastel, acrylic, and watercolor. Classes are once a week. McCarn will offer an art camp for kids during the summer. 

"Gazing Fox" by Linh Tran, age 11.
McCarn’s paintings in the show, including landscapes in Maryland and Virginia, reflect her interest in the effects of light and the healing beauty found in natural settings.

McCarn has taught art for more than 20 years in Fairfax County Public Schools and the Holmes Run Montessori School. She holds a bachelor of fine arts degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art and a masters in art education from George Mason University.
