Second grade students recently visited the Art Junction to view their landscape exhibit.
Students are learning about landscape art, and the best way to learn is to visit a local art gallery and see an exhibit of landscapes.
Students had the opportunity to see many different types of landscapes from local artists.
Second graders learned how landscape artists are showing others their view of the world around them.
This was a great opportunity for all of the students to experience landscape art and local art and artists and to see art in a gallery.
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!
