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 February, March, and April.

Color is so much more than meets the eye.  Students at Burnett Hill, Collins, and Mount Pleasant Elementary Schools examined this important element of art and explored how color influences their own artwork.  Not only does color impact how we experience the world around us, but it is a universal language which allows all viewers to create their own story.  

Come and enjoy these vibrant artworks on display in March, through which students share their world of color and create their own story along the way.

Second grade students at Collins and Mount Pleasant Elementary Schools explored non-objective art.  Non-objective art does not depict any identifiable person, place or thing.  Instead, students developed creative paintings focusing only on shape, line, and color.  Students were careful with their color choices and explored the difference between warm and cool colors as well.  To draw more attention to their shapes and color choices, students outlined focal points with black and white paint.  We also examined the non-objective paintings of Wassily Kandinsky, who is considered one of the founders of this style, and Reggie Laurent’s non-objective DNA series for inspiration.

Fourth grade students at Burnet Hill and Mount Pleasant Elementary learned about the significance of mandalas. Mandalas are a symbol that represent the interconnection of all living things-much like a community within a classroom. Students can piece together their mandalas in infinite ways to create something new and beautiful! We also learned the technique of printmaking, a tedious process involving a lot of planning and preparation. Students rolled block printing ink to etched styrofoam paper to then transfer their mandala quarter onto their papers, creating a print. Each mandala piece is unique to each student and can be pieced together with other peers to create a whole circle.
