Third graders visited the Art Junction this autumn to view the exhibit Southern Exposure –Artists Open Studio visits the Art Junction.
Students had the opportunity to view the work of artists from the Artists’ Open Studio in Norwalk, Ohio.
Students enjoyed seeing a variety of art, mediums and styles of artwork.
This was a great experience for students to see art in their community and to view art in a new context outside of the art classroom setting.
The Art Junction’s mission is to bring the community together for creative experiences, and this field trip really began to allow students to see a larger world beyond their classroom.
The third graders enjoyed their tour of the exhibit and learning about art in their community.
On the last week of school the Art Junction hosted several field trips for the Willard City Schools Elementary Art Department.
Kindergarten and first grade students viewed “The Last Richmond School Art Show” which featured art work from the 4th, 5th and 6th grade students at Richmond.
Students enjoyed viewing and engaging all of the various art work.
Richmond students also had the opportunity to visit their exhibit.
It was a great learning experience for students to see the sculpture, digital photography and paintings on exhibit.
I hope you take the time to view and engage local art exhibits at the Art Junction.
Third graders visited the Art Junction this fall to view the Charles Casto Retrospective exhibition.
Students and teachers had a great time viewing the work of local art pioneer Charles Casto.
Everyone enjoyed seeing the various examples and exhibits of the artist’s varied work from sculpture, drawings and paintings to examples of his carvings.
Students had many questions about the life of the artist who was the first art teacher at the Willard City Schools.
The third graders enjoyed seeing the art work of former students of the artist.
Some of Charles’ former students have become professional artists, such as Don Moore and Steve Axtel, while others have made art a serious pursuit or hobby.
It was a great field trip for the students to connect with local art in their community and to learn about the art history of their town.
Take the time to support the arts in your local community by visiting a gallery, museum, concert or theatrical production. It will grow your visual perception of the world you live in!
Second grade students visited The Art Junction to view the landscape exhibition in October.
Second grade students are learning about landscapes in art class, so, to incorporate this lesson with their local community, they visited an art gallery.
Students had the opportunity to learn about landscape art through viewing the work of local artists who have created landscapes.
Landscape art is the depiction in art of landscapes, natural scenery such as mountains, valleys, trees, rivers, and forests, and especially art where the main subject is a wide view, with its elements arranged into a coherent composition.
In other works landscape backgrounds for figures can still form an important part of the work. Sky is almost always included in the view, and weather is often an element of the composition.
Landscape photography shows spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes.
Students had a great opportunity to see many types of landscapes from their local environment and experience what it’s like to visit an art gallery.
Students enjoyed their visit and learning about art outside of the school building.
It’s important for students to learn that art is not just a subject in school but a pursuit that can be followed over a lifetime.
The Art Junction’s Landscape exhibit was a great learning experience for the second grade students to learn about landscapes and to see how artists create and exhibit them.
