EVS students on Level 3 and up were recently invited to view the Art in the Atrium show, featuring work by Barbara Bullock. These students met several times in the weeks before the trip, learning about Barbara Bullock and her works in preparation, and began creating projects that reflected her style.
These projects were begun by having students look closely at examples they found online. They found that many of Ms. Bullock’s art works are abstract, colorful, paper collage sculptures. Students then drew 3 various shapes (at least 14 inches long), and cut and painted each side using various acrylic paint colors and techniques.
During their visit to the Morris Museum, students were able to get a closer look at Ms. Bullock's works, noting their actual size and colorful details. They were then offered a classroom to work in, completing their paper sculptures following their viewing of the show.
Essex Valley School would also like to give special thanks to board member, Michelle L. Macchia. She accompanied our artists to the Morris Museum and provided the workspace for our artists. Without her, this event would not have been possible. Our students greatly appreciated her generosity!
