The Oliver Wolcott Library is pleased to present the mixed media artwork from the Litchfield Public Schools. In the gallery from April 2, 2012 through April 27, 2012.
The Litchfield Center School students found inspiration in the masterful paintings of Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh to create their own diverse variety of landscapes, cityscapes, self portraits and abstract animals. Their bold use of color, lines and shapes are found in their beautiful art creations.
The Litchfield Intermediate School students display their knowledge of the elements of art and the principles of design by utilizing a variety of media techniques inspired by the work of Kandinsky, LeWitt and Faith Ringold.
