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.

Each year, students make a folder in which to store artwork. This student became so involved in his art that he came in for extra time to experiment with his ideas and to embellish his work with many fine details. The motivation for his piece is a memory of a day spent with his family during the summer.
