Mount Prospect at NJPAC - Fall 2011

One of my goals, each year, is to display as much artwork as possible outside of our school. Throughout the Fall, 2 pieces of artwork will be on display in the lobby of the Victoria Theater at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, Newark, NJ. This is a juried exhibit sponsored by the Art Educators of New Jersey, 30 pieces will be exhibited in all.  All the artwork is framed under glass and lit in true gallery style. It is quite an honor to have work exhibited in this exhibit, art educators from around the state of New Jersey submit work! The Artist's Reception was Sunday, September 25, 2011.

Congratulations to Hailey (2nd grade) & Martin (5th grade)!!!

If you are going to NJPAC soon please make sure to stop by and enjoy the exhibit! All the artwork from this exhibit can been viewed in the AENJ Artsonia Gallery.

Check out our Monochromatic Portraits!

Welcome Back!  For the first two weeks of school the students created Monochromatic Portraits.  Monochromatic means containing or using only one color or one group of colors.   I first saw this idea on the blog - smART Class.  It was the perfect way to begin the new school year.  The portraits were drawn on 5X8", unlined index cards.  Students started by drawing in pencil, then they used crayons, markers and colored pencil to add color.  To complete the project - ALL the self portraits (over 500) were displayed in color order - it made for quite the exhibit!  It was hard to walk past without stopping and looking at all the amazing work!  Enjoy the video below!
