Studio Art classes from South Middle School worked on a project with teaching artists from the Heckscher Museum of Art; Activities included observing and discussing the artwork of two artists and making thematic connections; researching circles and spirals throughout history and the ancient history of the mandala, which is still used in contemporary artwork; comparing and contrasting different types of symmetry, reviewed elements of color theory, and finally developed their skills in watercolor, oil pastel, and collage. The student artwork became part of a group installation once completed. They improved their visual literacy, and developed a greater understanding of the importance of art in everyday life. As a culmination of the project the students visited the Heckscher Museum in Huntington to view the exhibit "From Frankenthaler to Warhol: Art of the '60s and '70s" and "The Art of Narrative: Timeless Tales and Visual Vignettes", and made connections between them.

While looking at the artwork from the Narrative exhibit, students worked in groups to create their own stories (narrative) about the works of art and then shared their stories in a group discussion. When viewing the pop art exhibit, students were asked to choose their favorite painting and draw their own rendering of it. The two museum educators working with the students kept them actively engaged the entire time. It was a fabulous week for the students to experience art in a unique way; making "real-world" connections between their classroom experiences and the art they see each day in the world.

 

 


Six extraordinarily talented Lynbrook High School students had the privilege of performing at the renowned Eastman Theater in Rochester, NY as members of the 2017 New York All-State Ensembles. The All-State Concerts are part of the annual New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) Winter Conference.
