Vans Shoe Company Contest

Students at Lyndonville had the exciting opportunity to design 4 pairs of shoes for the Vans Shoe Company. This was through a nation wide contest Vans holds every year. They sent the school 4 blank pairs of sneakers to which student had to design each pair based on set themes. This years themes were; Music, Art, Local Flare and Action Sports. Although our shoes came out amazing and the students worked very hard, unfortunately our shoes were not selected. However, it was a fun experience and we have amazing pieces of art to put on display.

Studio Art Field Trip

On Tuesday November 22, students in Studio Art had the privilege of attending a field trip to the Albright Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo. While at the gallery students received a tour through the visiting Picasso exhibit. Students got to see some very famous pieces of art while learning about the interesting life of Pablo Picasso. After the private tour, students were free to explore the rest of the gallery with an assignment to find a piece of artwork that called to them. The piece they selected will be used in a future art lesson within the studio art class.

A Visit to The Albright Knox

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.

Post It Note Mural

Lyndonville’s Studio Art Class has been working very hard the last week to create a Post It Note mural. Not sure what a Post It Note mural is? Using only colored Post It Notes students created an image of a tiger. If you have ever played the game Mine Craft or looked too close at a TV screen you have probably noticed the tiny blocks of color that make up the whole image, pixels as we like to call them. From a distance you do not even notice all the colored boxes because you eyes and mind blend them together to help you see the big picture.  This project uses the same concept only we purposely pixalated an image of a tiger, the school’s mascot. Since each pixel represented a colored Post It Note, it was time for some math to be involved. Students had to figure out the real dimensions of the tiger if created out of 3″ Post Its to make sure it would fit on the wall and also how many Post It Notes would be needed all together. After 1,225 Post Its, a lot of tape and a week of hard work the tiger appeared! It is best viewed at the end of the very long hallway to allow your eyes to blend the pixels together or believe it or not viewing it through your cell phone’s camera len also helps the magic to appear! The mural turned out amazing, great job to all those involved!

It’s a work of heART!

On Tuesday evening, Lyndonville School hosted many special events for community members to attend. These events included a Common Core Night, a Walk-A-Thon, a special presentation and panel discussion with the Genesee/Orleans Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse and a student art show.

The art show featured student work from Kindergarten all the way through 12th grade. There was a variety of pieces on display including digital photography, ceramics, paintings, drawings, computer graphics as well as many other art forms. It was wonderful to see the hallways filled with our students’ amazing artwork and to see the growth that happens from elementary to high school. Art allows our students to explore personal relevance in the world around them through cultural and historical understanding. All this while teaching problem solving skills, hand eye coordination, and creativity among others. The student pieces on display exhibited this features in full and were a joy to look at!

Those who attended the special night also had the chance to win a few special prizes and enjoy special art palette cookies made by our own Leadership Class. The prizes included, tickets the the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, The Memorial Art Gallery and art supplies.

We are very proud of our Lyndonville student artists!

Below are some photographs of the student art show, “It’s a work of heART.”

Visit to TakeForm & Baxter in Medina

Career & Finance and PLTW classes Visit TakeForm & Baxter in Medina

By: Aubrey

Students from LCS were able to explore career fields at Baxter and TakeForm.  Baxter employs 600 people at the Medina facility. They are part of a worldwide corporation.   At Baxter, they make IV pumps for hospitals. They have many different components of production, such as delivery, troubleshooting, and assembly. “I learned many interesting new facts about this company, the products, and its jobs. The factor that I found the most fascinating however was the assembly. It was amusing how many parts and how much concentration was needed to produce one part.”

The second place my group went to was TakeForm. This was a place that makes signs and wall graphics. Some of the different components of this business were design and production. What appealed to me at this place was the creativity that had to be put in to create their products. Also it was interesting about all of the different skills needed to produce their work.

“The graphic design portion of TakeForm interested me for a career. This is because design and creativity is something I enjoy doing. I would probably need some type of art class throughout high school, but I’m not so sure about college.”
