Litchfield Public Schools will have their artwork on display in the Jamie Gagarin Community Room and Gallery at the Oliver Wolcott Library.
Students from Pre-School to Third Grade have created artwork of different artistic styles from a wide range of countries. Many turned to Ghana and Panama to get their ideas for Kente cloth and Mola design creations. Using paint and clay they mixed primary colors to produce secondary colors and also chose a favorite animal to draw and created its habitat.
Grades 4 through 6 at Litchfield Intermediate School learned about the Elements and Principles of Art while developing their critical thinking and problem-solving skills through a variety of art-making processes such as collage, scratchboard, and printmaking.
Art from Litchfield Middle School students will feature a variety of subject matter including Op Art, value drawings, 3-D paper sculptures, and self-portraits using colored pencils, marker, and graphite pencil. Students employed different techniques to create abstract illusions as well as representational artwork.
Art from Litchfield High School students will include works from Advanced Placement Studio Art, Advanced Art, Painting & Mixed Media, Drawing, and Illustration & Character Design. Works feature a variety of subject matter including portraiture, still life, and conceptual work, and employ a variety of art media.
