The Rockwell Museum welcomed Art Option and Adaptive Art students for a new student exhibition program in collaboration with Corning-Painted Post High School art teachers Sharron Holland and Megan Wukovitz and Middle School art teacher Maria Goldwyn. During their visit to the Museum, students learned about different art and objects made by diverse American artists.
Color, Shape & Texture Student Exhibition is on view December 3, 2022 – February 5, 2023 at KIDS ROCKWELL Art Lab.
Students viewed landscapes, abstract paintings, sculptural works and historic Native American art. They explored various art styles and mediums while learning about different cultural traditions. They experienced the collection through interactive sensory exploration using sight, sound and touch.
Students took inspiration from The Rockwell’s collection back to their classrooms to create mixed media, process-based pieces. Under the direction of the art teachers, students worked both independently and collaboratively to create their artwork. This project was focused on creative thinking and developing fine motor skills of students with unique needs.
The Rockwell is excited to collaborate with the Corning-Painted Post Area School District on this new initiative and display artwork to celebrate the talent and creativity of students in the district’s Art Options and Adaptive Art classes.
This special exhibition was created with support from Corning-Painted Post School District’s Special Education Parent Teacher Association (SEPTA).
