Welcome to the
Greenville Public Library
On-line Art Gallery

The Greenville Public Library On-line Art Gallery gathers together, for permanet display, images and commentary by artists whose works have been on display in the library. The library encourages each artist to "amplify' their works by providing comment on each work and/or a statement of their philosophy of art. It is therefore hoped to make this web-space a place for the enjoyment of art and a place of reflection.

INTRO TO STUDENT ART WORK 2007


The art work on the next 8 pages is a year and a half of student’s work. Students came to the library every Wednesday to journey across the art history timeline and to learn the foundations of art. The classes with students ages 5 to 8 learned the principles and elements of art while the older students studied the art of the ancient Egyptians through 20th century Pop Art. They looked at the art of 16 different times and movements that included the ancient Romans, the Renaissance, Impressionism, and Abstract Art.  Inspired by those artists, the students created their own art in many different mediums that included watercolor, charcoal, clay, pastel, and collage. The classes culminated in an art opening and show held on June 13, 2007 at the Greenville Public Library. Please check out this beautiful and creative work on these pages.
