Painting Students Display Unique Project

Students in the second trimester painting class at Northwood had a odd but fun project recently. Ms. Van Slyke assigned students to paint chairs influenced by an influential artist. “I have collected antique chairs from various garage sales and stores in preparation for this assignment,” Ms. Van Slyke said.

Students wrote a description of their chair and artist’s style to display in the living room for all to see. Students picked a famous artists and replicated their painting style  and techniques to put on their own chair. The chairs were painted carefully, taking about three weeks to make. The best chairs will be entered into a contest at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts and the others will go home to families.
