At the Bloomington Elementary Schools Art Show, Elementary students were honored by the Bloomington Theatre and Art Center for their original creations of artwork. Ten schools selected fifteen students to have their artwork displayed in the Visual Arts Atrium Gallery from May 1 through May 30. Selected students were recognized at an awards ceremony with their art teachers and families in the Schneider Theater and received a medal and certificate. A short reception followed.
In art class, students studied art masterpieces, how they were created and the artists. Then they created their own versions using the style and techniques of the artist.
Lily, a first grader at Ridgeview Elementary, was selected for the Bloomington Elementary Schools Art Show for her abstract scene of Broadway, titled Uptown. It was modeled after the artist Piet Mondrian. Mondrian created artwork by reducing the object of his art down to the simplest form and used primary colors and simple shapes. “It has streets and a bunch of cars and it is a starry night,” said Lily. Her teacher was Mr. Jack Collis.
The Visual Arts Atrium Gallery is free and open to the public. For more information visit the Bloomington Theatre and Art Center website.
