Fourth grade students from Richmond School completed their final project: a collective sculpture based on the art of Jean Dubuffet.

First everyone completed painting their section of the sculpture white.

Next students began to add color and lines based on the ideas of Jean Dubuffet, who used the limited pallet of red, blue, black and white.

Fourth graders learned to work as a group as they built and painted their sculpture.

Jean Dubuffet (31 July 1901 – 12 May 1985) was a French painter and sculptor.  He is perhaps best known for founding the art movement Art Brut, and for the collection of works—Collection de l’art brut—that this movement spawned. Dubuffet enjoyed a prolific art career, both in France and in America, and was featured in many exhibitions throughout his lifetime.  From 1962 he produced a series of works in which he limited himself to the colors red, white, black, and blue. Towards the end of the 1960s he turned increasingly to sculpture, producing works in polystyrene which he then painted with vinyl paint.
