Exhibition Installation: West-Mont Montessori school
Today we opened our annual Student Art Exhibition at West-Mont Montessori school where I am the art teacher. We transformed the ceiling of the gymnasium by hanging parachutes and an abundance of light strings.
Enjoying the musical installation ("Synesthetic Compositions")
Students are listening to the music that was played during the "compositions" of the drawings in front of them (1. African Lullaby, 2. Theme from "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", 3. Mozart Symphony, 4. Holst's "The Planets: Uranus the Magician".
Compositions of the theme from "Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind"
Architectural pointillism paintings of the school building
Mondrian inspired grids (using tape & watercolour)
Still-life drawings of the Montessori Trinomial Cube
Collage animals inspired by Charles Harper
Le Petite Sistine Chapel (art fort)
We also installed a fort using wooden pallets that became our "Petite Sistine Chapel" where the students renderings of "The Creation of Adam" (drawn under their desks).
