We had an enjoyable time at our landscape painting workshop.

Everyone jumped into the creative process as they began with their sky in their painting.

Learning to control the brush was one skill we explored.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Next we added the ground to our image.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Adding trees to the paintings was the next step.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone put their own unique touch to their landscape.

Everyone enjoyed learning about the process of creating a landscape with acrylic paints.

After learning about the various parts of the landscape, everyone enjoyed working with acrylic paint.

Learning that small details can make a large impact to your landscape was a great learning experience for all involved.

DSCN3281

Come view over 170 canvases from six years of emerging talent from the visual art students of Richmond, New Haven, Central and the former Greenfield Schools from the 2008-2014 school years. Under the direction of artist/teacher Kevin Casto, students have been introduced to painting and explored various themes, concepts and skills along with color theory and art history with mixed mediums on 16 x 20” canvas.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

PLEASE SUPPORT the emerging art talents of these young artists by attending their exhibition this spring as they visually express themselves and the greater community around them. This work has been on permanent display in the various elementary buildings and the board of education. Now see the work collectively in one exhibit as we transition into the new Willard Schools facility.

DSCN7832

The students’ paintings will be on sale during the exhibit for $20 each. All proceeds from the sale of their artwork will be placed in the art fund for the Elementary Art Program. Their artwork would be a great addition to your home, business or organization!

Multicolored painting


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

We began the painting project at the Willard Hope Center this past week.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Student members eagerly began the process of giving their canvases a base coat of acrylic paint.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

For many of the students it was their first encounter with painting on canvas with acrylics.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

It was an exciting beginning for everyone as to learn to use a  brush and create uniform strokes to cover their canvas.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Energy was high as everyone busily covered their blank canvas with a bright color.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Next week we will begin to mix colors and add shapes to the canvases.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

It was lots of fun to interact with the student members and see their eagerness to participate.

Painting classes


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The Art Junction offers many different classes.  One of our favorite is the expressive painting class where everyone explores painting, new techniques and materials together with having a lot of fun!

Expressive Painting -Week 2


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

We started this painting session by working outdoors on our ever-changing mural.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The idea was to loosen everyone up to the painting process to free their creative ideas.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone jumped into the painting process after our little outdoor exercise.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Participants concentrated on their canvases.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

There was a lot of great energy in the studio this evening.

It was great to see everyone jump into the painting process after loosening up outdoors.  I’m excited to see what the following week’s progress will produce with everyone’s excitement.
