A visit from the third grade


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Third graders visited the Art Junction this autumn to view the exhibit Southern Exposure –Artists Open Studio visits the Art Junction.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students had the opportunity to view the work of artists from the Artists’ Open Studio in Norwalk, Ohio.

Artistsopenstudio2015Students enjoyed seeing a variety of art, mediums and styles of artwork.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This was a great experience for students to see art in their community and to view art in a new context outside of the art classroom setting.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The Art Junction’s mission is to bring the community together for creative experiences, and this field trip really began to allow students to see a larger world beyond their classroom.

The third graders enjoyed their tour of the exhibit and learning about art in their community.

Artists’ Open Studio


DSCN9496

The Art Junction was thrilled to exhibit work from the Artists’ Open Studio in the winter of 2012.  Artists’ Open Studio, Inc. was created for adults with developmental disabilities from Huron County. However, it is a place for aspiring artists of all abilities who enjoy sharing their creative spirits among other local artists. Each person works independently, yet with the support and encouragement from the group and AOS staff. Artists come from many walks of life with various skills to our uninstructed meetings. Painting & ceramic studio artists gather weekly at Christie Lane in Norwalk.

Artists’ Open Studio sponsors an annual Art Exhibit – traditionally held the 3rd Friday of June at the Ernsthausen Performing Arts Center Gallery, 350 Shady Lane Dr, Norwalk. Artwork may be purchased at our shows or from our displays at Christie Lane with profits going directly to the artists. AOS also creates products for sale to purchase art supplies for the artists from Christie Lane. Purchases of handmade ceramic tile, recycled glass jewelry, note cards, stationary, and custom printing help to support AOS.
