This year we are exploring the art room through open art centers. We started the year with drawing, painting and collaging. Students were excited and creative. We look forward to exploring new media every couple of weeks. Check out the T.A.B website to learn more about how we are learning and working this year.
First graders hand-dyed wool and then used looms to create these stunning weavings! They practiced weaving with paper first so were really good weavers by the time the wool was ready. Our 'secret' wool-dyeing ingredient? KOOL AID!
5th and 6th Graders learned about the work of sculptor Claes Oldenburg and created larger-than-life sculptures of foods we find locally in Vermont. Our 'feast' took over the library for a few weeks!
Third through Sixth graders practiced some artistic problem solving and thought of new, inventive ways to get to school when the traditional ways were not available (car, bus, walk, bike etc...).
The Brattleboro Museum & Art Center invites children and adults of all ages to participate in its Fourth Annual LEGO Contest & Exhibit.

Every March is student art month here in Windham County which means LOTS of great art exhibited everywhere. The Moore Free Library in Newfane has one of the most beautiful gallery spaces and NewBrook students are lucky enough to be able to hang their work here. Check out the images below of the show. Awesome work! The show will be up for the whole month of March.
Kindergartners zooooooomed into the details of a monarch wing using an ELMO and created these amazing line and watercolor pieces. Enjoy the slide show of work below!
Our works-in-progress are waiting for facial features, paint and adornment...keep an eye out for more working shots.
I just came across the work of artist, Patrick Dougherty. In past years we have studied and worked on pieces inspired by earth sculptor, Andy Goldsworthy, but Dougherty's work is making me start to dream of a new outdoor project. Check out a quick clip of his work...
YAY! New year..new art!
The WHOLE school community got together to brainstorm ways we can be open, careful and respectful in the art room. We created this tree to represent these ideas. Each student created a bird to symbolize their involvement in the project and to affirm their understanding of art room expectations.
Don't you wish we had trees that changed colors like this cool one we made??
