April 4 - April 28, 2017
The Larchmont Public Library is pleased to announce the opening of the third annual student art exhibit featuring works by students enrolled in the Drawing and Painting program at Mamaroneck High School. The exhibit, which opens in the library’s Oresman Gallery on Tuesday, April 4, will run through April 28 and is available for viewing during normal library hours.
The exhibit will feature works in a variety of mediums by 14 participating students in the 10th through 12th grades.
The students in this show are currently taking the Drawing Painting class at Mamaroneck High School, the second in the 4 year sequence of courses in this media area. MHS has a strong, sequential program in drawing and painting that builds on past learning and prepares students for the rigors of an art and design education in all different media after high school, if they choose to follow this path. In Drawing & Painting, students work intensively with problems of representing forms three-dimensionally in space by drawing and painting a variety of subjects. They also explore more deeply color theory and linear and atmospheric perspective that they began to study last year in Art Foundation. In addition, the students begin to learn to work independently outside of class, and practice their art analysis skills by discussing work in group critiques in the classroom.
