March – May Monthly Display

As a collaboration between the Livingston Public Library and the Livingston Public School Visual Arts program, the Library’s display case will feature rotating artworks created by elementary and middle school students under the guidance of their art teachers, for the months of March, April and May.

The display season starts in March with a vibrant variety of  artworks in different media created by middle school students from Mount Pleasant Medical School and Heritage Middle School

Under the direction of MPMS art teacher Alexandra Fiore, 6th graders created paintings to inspire positive messages in the community, inspired by artist and activist Peter Max.

Dramatic Greek theater mask style relief sculptures displaying emotions using plaster, cardboard, styrofoam and aluminum foil are also on display.

HMS students were led by art teachers Janice Reis and Jordan Montgomery.

7th graders created 3D face relief sculptures displaying emotion or feeling, using plaster craft and acrylic paint, inspired by Expressionism.

Also created by 7th graders are expressive 3D hand paintings inspired  by Auguste Rodin–students cast their own hands in plaster and incorporated the hand in a painting to evoke a feeling or emotion.

8th graders created animal paintings inspired by Fauvism, a style characterized by a saturated color palette, thick brushstrokes, and simplified forms. They also created Tessellations, unique repeating patterns inspired by artist M. C. Escher.  Also on display are beautiful ceramic bowls created by draping clay slabs over molds and imprinting a variety of natural textures.
