Imagine Brandywine is a series of collaborative exhibitions created with area schools. Led by their teachers and Brandywine staff, students from Delaware, Chester, and New Castle counties have the opportunity to make connections with the Museum's collection and exhibitions and to have their work on display. 

The current exhibition is by kindergarten to eighth-grade students from The Pilot School in Wilmington, DE.  The students took their inspiration from the luscious dessert paintings of Wayne Thiebaud, while emphasizing the artist’s use of color, texture, composition and shadows. Working under the direction of art teacher Lisa Hauschild, the students used a variety of media including cut paper, oil pastels, markers and acrylic paint.
