Closing weekend

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.

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.

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!

Our Wednesday Afternoon students have been learning about the art of Keith Haring.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students began by looking at and discussing the images of Keith Haring.

Everyone chose a character of Haring that they liked and a movement or action to recreate on their own.

Marker was employed to add a bold outline to their images.

Watercolor was added to fill in the character’s action.

Everyone was satisfied with their work in this adventure in art.

Closing Weekend for Deleted Scenes


Take a 10 minute Art Break this Friday or Saturday to view the latest show at the Art Junction.

The Art Junction is a great 10 minute stop on your weekend trip to Mansfield or Sandusky.

Bruce Philip Bitmead was born in Buffalo, New York in 1963 and graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1983, starting to paint in earnest that same year.  He has been exhibiting his works steadily since 1987, mainly in Illinois, Pennsylvania and New York, with solo shows in California and London, England.  Bitmead spent much of the 80’s and 90’s employed as a graphic designer and illustrator in Chicago, but returned to Buffalo in 1998, where he concentrates on his personal work.  Bitmead is no stranger to North Central Ohio, having served as an artist in residence in the 90’s at Black River Local Schools and Willard City Schools.

“Since 1983, I have alternately concentrated on drawing, painting and sculpture in both representational and abstract manners.  The skills I learn in one discipline inform the others, which has enabled me to slowly but surely develop a cohesive artistic vision over the past 29 years.  I am glad for the opportunity to gather various types of work and present them in one exhibit at the Art Junction.”

We had a great opening at the Art Junction for the Willard City Schools 4th grade Art Exhibition.

36 paintings are on display from the 4th grade classes at Richmond and New Haven Schools.

Also on display is the Underground Railroad Quilt created by the 4th grade students at New Haven School.  An interesting note –  the New Haven area (where the Art Junction is located) was a stopping point on the Underground Railroad.

The 4th grade students’ 16” x 20” monochromatic paintings will be on sale during the exhibit.  All proceeds from the sale of their artwork will be placed in the Outdoor Education Fund for their 6th grade experience at Mohican Outdoor School. We hope you will participate!  Their artwork would be a great addition to your home, business, or organization!

Students also wrote about their monochromatic paintings, the process of creating them, and what their work was about.

Come view the monochromatic paintings of the Willard City Schools 4th grade visual art students under the direction of artist/teacher Kevin Casto.

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.
