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.

First and Second Grade Abstract Paintings

The artists have been experimenting with overlapping layers of shapes, colors and lines this semester. In these abstract paintings they used primary, secondary and complementary colors. We recycled the tape used in these art works by creating a tape monster sculpture as an introduction to 3-dimensional form.
