Last Tuesday, students in Studio Art had the pleasure of visiting the Albright Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo. This was a wonderful experience for students to see works of art created by some of the most famous artist such as; Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh, Seurat, as well as many others. This allows students to put a name with the actual pieces as well as to understand the size range and application techniques. We explored works from a wide range of important historical art time periods. The gallery did a wonderful job explaining how each piece was a growth from the last art style before it, thus making it an important part of art history.
Students enjoyed the trip and are working on coming up with an art lesson/project to incorporate their visit for a chance to win a grant money to be put towards Lyndonville’s future art programming. As well as a chance to have their artwork featured within the Albright Knox Gallery, sharing wall space with some of the most well known artists of all time.
