  • OVA at the Elementary School

    Clinton elementary art students are working in full force on the Olympics of the Visuals Arts. This month we would like to feature the architecture group. Their challenge is to create a small or micro home. Architects have been adapting and converting international shipping containers into basic structures for homes and other human uses. The team’s mission is to design an artist studio in a single shipping container. For the purposes of this challenge the standard container size is 40 feet long, 8 feet wide and 8 feet tall. They must use those dimensions and convert them to create their scaled down model design. The students are designing the studio to use alternate sources for water or power with the intent to make it “off the grid.” The building will be in the woods over a waterfall which will be used for power. The picture shows them creating the landscape for their design.

  • Third Grade Class Visits MWPAI

    Students from grade 3 took a field trip to Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute to see a special exhibit of kimonos designed by Japanese artist Itchiku Kubota. After he was released from a prisoner of war camp in Siberia, he spent the majority of his time inventing a new dying technique that was used in his world renowned fabric images. The images on the kimonos show his beautiful perspective on the world despite having lived through such tragedy. While at the museum, students learned the history behind the kimonos in contrast to contemporary art work of today, and created haikus and various sketches in response to the exhibit. It was a wonderful interdisciplinary project.
