ART IN OUR SCHOOLS WITH LORI HAAS, DIRECTOR
 

IN HILLMAN:  James Rizzi stay pencil drawings from Hillman 4th - 6th graders

James Rizzi James Rizzi studied Fine Arts at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida.

He came up with the idea of 3D multiples now mostly associated with his name when, having taken classes in painting, printmaking and sculpturing, he had to hand in grade work for all three subjects, but only had time for doing one. So he created an etching, printed it twice, handcolored it, and mounted parts of the one print on top of the other, using wire as a means of adding depth. Having received good grades from all three teachers, he stuck with the idea and developed it further.[

    JL Watercolors 

    Each elementary school in the county is visited throughout the year and offered a fine arts program that meets their school needs. The students have had the opportunity to learn about different famous artists and techniques. They have studied the photography of Snowflake Bentley, symmetry and asymmetry, Cezanne still life, Monet, the pop art doodle-like drawings of James Rizzi and much more.  Each class period the students have created their own original artwork in the style of the artist.  Many of the projects that the students complete will be entered in the Library's annual art show called Voices and Visions. Look for more information about the Voices and Visions art show in May.
