A Playground of Color2014
Jan 27 - March 17, 2014
Playground of Color is an annual exhibit showcasing the best
of art from local elementary students. Students work hard all year,
and then teachers choose the best and brightest to fill the Montgomery
Gallery here at JHM.
This favorite community show features over 200 works, impressive expressions of talent, freshness and energy. This annual exhibit runs from January 26th to March 6th and is also showing concurrently at the Coshocton and West Lafayette Libraries.
Artwork for A Playground of Color comes from students in kindergarten through sixth grade who attend elementary and middle schools in Coshocton’s city and county schools as well as from Coshocton Christian School and home school. Works are chosen by the students’ art teachers for their creativity and excellence.
The exhibit shows off a remarkable variety of artistic styles and media and includes both two and three-dimensional pieces. Students are learning about perspective, patterns, printmaking, Pop Art, and more, using watercolors, mixed media-collage, pastels and crayon. Their work is very good and, of course, whimsical as they explore a variety of art techniques.
