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.

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.

Collective sculpture

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

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

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

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.

DubuffetPaume

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.
