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.

This fall, first and second graders have been working from observation and from their vivid imaginations while using a wide variety of mediums to explore color. The drawings above depict what just might take place in The Land of the Dazzling Dots! In these, the children used colored chalks, colored pencils and crayons.
