May Art Exhibit
The Village School Student Art Exhibition

Village School Art

The enthusiastic artists displayed in this exhibition come from all over central and north central Massachusetts.  Preschoolers through 6th graders have been exploring the elements of art - line, shape, form, color, space and through a variety of media and subjects.  Engaging creativity with learned techniques, the artists have created plaster masks, ceramic cups, linoleum prints, acrylic paintings, and more while experiencing how art plays a part in everyday life, both today and in the past, and provides an avenue of self-discovery.
