Presented in collaboration with Congregation Beth Elohim Early Childhood Center
Andrea Mastrovito created life-size silhouettes of each student, which were then cut out to form paper dolls. The artist and students colored and decorated the cut-outs, which were then fixed to the walls. Finally, with the help of a few industrial fans, the students gave life to the silhouettes as the pieces moved around in the wind. Through this movement, the students created small vignettes or stories around the images and objects that they replicated.
ECC x Artists Alliance is a series of collaborative projects initiated by Artists Alliance Inc with Congregation Beth Elohim Early Childhood Center. Designed and led by guest artists, in collaboration with ECC educator Tom Pnini, students work in the classroom on pre-designed projects that both parallel the school’s current art curriculum and extend from the individual artist’s existing practice. Collectively, the projects urge students to experience art-making through unexpected visual relationships, using professional artists’ practices as a means to create engaging and interactive learning activities.| | | Next → |
