The ACL is Where the Wild Things Are this winter! Artists in Kindergarten at Williams School have expressed their creativity in wild colors with great imagination in our latest library exhibit. Come to select your favorite painting and imagine your own as you view our four large exhibit frames in the Great Room, as well as the new “clothesline” art in the Children’s Room.
Williams Kindergarten artists created Wild Things, based on the book Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. While reading the book, the students discussed how they could create a wild thing – make large eyes, horns, claws, crazy hair, etc. The artists noticed how lines could be used to make visual textures for fur and scales. Using oil pastels, they drew the largest shapes first (body and head) and then added smaller details. They then added color with oil pastels and tempera cake paints.
Many thanks to Williams Art Teacher Kathleen McGill and ACL volunteer Liz Noon for bringing this exhibit to the library!
