Luther Burbank Center for the Arts is pleased to showcase student artwork from around the county. The current exhibit features two different projects created by 2nd – 3rd grade students from Windsor Creek Elementary School.
This combination 2-3 class, co-taught by Bre Schafer & Kate Wick, has a regular practice of exploring a variety of artists and styles of art throughout the school year.
There are two different projects presented in this exhibit. The first is a study in Pointillism in which students painstakingly painted an image using hundreds of dots in clear, distinct colors. Subjects for these pieces include self-portraits, flowers, fanciful creatures, and landscapes. Famous artists who used this technique include Vincent van Gogh and George Seurat.
The second project presented in this exhibit explores the Pop art style made famous during the 1950s and 1960s. The movement is called “Pop art” because it is artwork based on or inspired by people and things popular in culture. Subjects of Pop art include portraits, as in Andy Warhol’s John Lennon piece, or the ubiquitous soda can. To create this Pop art inspired piece, students used photo copies of their school pictures and colorized them using markers.
We hope you enjoy the work of these creative students!
