Allen Brook and Mansfield Art Studios

The painting above, made in '08-'09, depicts the old Williston train station. This is one of two images that depict historic buildings of our town. The children learned how to project an image, copy it onto canvas and observe angles, color values and tones and other details from the original black and white photos. They also imagined the colors of the building, sidewalks, train, clothing and surrounding landscape. The paintings hung for a while at Dorothy Alling Library and now are at Allen Brook School.

Art and Technology 2010-2011

First and second graders are combining art and technology skills using Photo Shop. Here, their Magical Village drawings were scanned and then edited in the computer lab.

I love the Magical Villages. The bright colors, design and sense of place are delightful. It's interesting how art and technology worked so nicely together to portray the children's magical villages.

I really enjoy viewing all the art projects.
